REVEALED: The five Wigan eateries with a zero-star food hygiene rating
These Wigan restaurants, shops and takeaways have been given the lowest possible rating by the Food Standards Agency.
They were inspected between October 2017 and February 2018, and all deemed to require “urgent improvement.”
Each business is given a hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer from the business’s local authority.
The inspection criteria includes:
How hygienically the food is handled
How it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
The condition and 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
At the end of the inspection, the business is given one of six ratings from 0-5.
All these businesses are still open but will have to make significant improvements in the near future before re-inspection.
