Takeaway to face food poisoning claims?

Food poisoning compensation claims could be launched by customers of a takeaway after it emerged the premises had been closed down due to poor hygiene.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, the Four Seasons food outlet on Beverley Road in Hull was found to be operating under "dreadful" cleanliness practices during a check-up by environmental health officials.

For instance, the restaurant had no monitoring system for the temperature of food and raw meant was contaminating prepared produce, some of which was sold despite being out of date.

In addition, discarded cigarette ends were found on the floor and staff were not offered any training on food preparation.

Consequently, Hull City Council - which is led by councillor Steve Brady - shut the premises straight away on the basis it presented an immediate public health risk.

An official from the local authority told the news source it will "not hesitate to take whatever action is necessary" to eradicate such issues.
