Numerous takeaways, restaurants and eateries in Bury St Edmunds still need to improve hygiene standards according to public heath inspectors
Last year the Bury Free Press highlighted the best and worst food hygiene ratings in the town at that time.
A number of those premises have now improved, but, despite re-inspections many still fall below satisfactory levels according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.
Data from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has found 16 eateries in Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding area failed to meet satisfactory food hygiene standards at the time of the last published inspection - an improvement on 29 a year ago.
No eatery gained zero stars meaning “urgent improvements needed”, eight only gained one star, meaning “major improvements” were needed, and nine got two stars, meaning “improvements necessary.”
The good news is most businesses preparing food in the area were ranked three or above.
Eateries are judged on three criteria:
•How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored.
•The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities.
•How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
The information published here is from the Food Standards Agency website as of Tuesday April 5, 2016.
