    Health & Food Hygiene | Kangs National Regulatory Solicitors

    A restaurant in Dunstable was recently fined more than £20,000 at Luton Magistrates’ Court after a customer discovered a cockroach in his pilau rice.

    Amandeep Murria of Kangs Solicitors comments.

    The Circumstances | Kangs Food Hygiene Solicitors

    Following the complaint by the customer to Central Bedfordshire Council in April 2017, environmental health officers attended the restaurant and discovered:

    • a build -up of dirt, grease and food debris was found in the pipework
    • the skirting boards in the kitchen were so thick with grease and grime that the colour of them could no longer be seen
    • there was a serious cockroach infestation which was not being treated
    • there was no food safety management system in place.

    As a consequence, a Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notice was served and the restaurant was shut immediately in order to protect the health of the general public.

    The Court Proceedings | Kangs Food Safety & Hygiene Defence Solicitors

    At the Hearing before the Luton Magistrates’ Court, the restaurant owner at the time pleaded guilty to six food safety offences and the Magistrates imposed:

    • a very substantial fine of £20,970
    • which included costs totalling £6,920 and a
    • victim surcharge.

    Councillor Ian Dalgarno was quoted to have said:

    ‘This sends a clear message to other food businesses that we will not tolerate businesses who flaunt hygiene rules.

    We take food hygiene extremely seriously.”
