REVEALED: The five Wigan eateries with a zero-star food hygiene rating

The worst rating possible
The worst rating possible

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.
