UK Aldershot takeaway ‘improving’ after zero hygiene rating dished out

A takeaway in Aldershot has been given a slap on the wrists for a series of food safety failings.

Hafeez in Station RoadHafeez in Station Road was issued two cautions by Rushmoor Borough Council on Thursday following an inspection.

The action came in relation to six food safety offences and a further health and safety offence

As a result, the takeaway has been given a food hygiene rating of zero – the lowest on the Food Standards Agency’s national rating scheme.

However, Hafeez has taken steps to improve the situation and will be working with the council in the coming months to ensure it meets appropriate standards.

Councillor Ken Muschamp, RBC cabinet member for safety and regulation, said: “I am fully supportive of the stance taken by the council’s food team to protect the health of residents.

“I would urge residents to use the scheme to check the hygiene status of food businesses in the borough.

“I only eat in food businesses that have a four or five rating. If a food business doesn’t display their hygiene rating sticker, I would ask why.”
