Successful Food Hygiene Prosecution

Fareham Borough Council has today successfully prosecuted Windjammer Inns Ltd, owner of The Cormorant Public House, for five offences under the Food Hygiene Regulations.

 

The prosecution at Fareham Magistrates Court follows a routine food hygiene inspection in 16th January 2013. Officers visited the Cormorant Pub and found the kitchen in a filthy condition. Food was stored in such a way that it was at serious risk of contamination, there were large quantities of food out of date, some by more than a month, and staff were seen handling food in an unhygienic manner.

 

Windjammer Inns Ltd have been fined £12,000 and ordered to pay full costs to the Council (£1794.93).

Following the inspection the company were required to re-train their staff in food hygiene and the hygiene procedures and cleanliness have since improved.

 

Executive Member for Public Protection, Cllr Trevor Cartwright said: "This is a very busy restaurant and they exposed their customers to a serious risk of illness.  This prosecution sends a clear message to food businesses in the Borough that they must ensure they follow good food hygiene practices and keep their kitchens clean, despite the current financial climate."
