HARLOW Council has issued over a hundred warning letters to food premises in the town over hygiene and safety issues.
This has been revealed in an Environmental Health report to the council’s licensing committee.
The report details all actions taken to ensure a healthy environment in over 300 premises across the town.
One premises was prosecuted in 2019-2020. Agora Café Limited pleaded guilty to multiple food hygiene offences.
During 2019/2020 the Service received 43 formal notifications of infectious disease, mostly food- borne. Notifications can include Salmonella, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, E coli O157 and Legionella. The source of these infections is often unknown for a variety of reasons. Some are attributed to travel abroad and many may have been acquired in their own home.
You can read the full report here.
This will be discussed at a Licensing Committee meeting on Thursday November 19th.
I think you should name and shame these places. We have a right to know, and decide where we buy safe food from !!
