Luton bakery prosecuted for sub-standard basic food hygiene

schedule 6 years, 4 months, 6 days ago by Virtual College in Food Hygiene

A bakery in Luton has been prosecuted and fined £10,000 for failing to adequately meet food safety standards.

The proprietor of Just Baked on Bolton Road in the Bedfordshire town, Mr Sunderam Premanand, was prosecuted for a total of ten offences related to food standards, reports Luton Today.

District Judge Leigh Smith stated: "I have seen the photographs of the fruit flies and mouse faeces and personally find the condition of the doughnut maker disgusting."

Local and food standards authorities found evidence of mice, recorded maggots on equipment and reported swarms of flies on produce.

The prevalence of basic food hygiene training has increased the need for employers and businesses to ensure they comply with relevant legislation, with Sarah Daniels of the health and safety consultancy Redcat.gb.com claiming businesses need to see the commercial sense of good food hygiene.

She added that "businesses need to show that they have complied consistently" with food hygiene standards, not just perfunctorily.
