Takeaway in Leyland handed new two-out-of-five food hygiene rating following recent inspection
and live on Freeview channel 276
Charcoal Grill, a takeaway in Chapel Brow, was given the score following an assessment on September 26.
The Food Standards Agency scores businesses from zero to five based on how hygienically food is handled, the condition of the facilities/buildings, and how the business manages/records what it does to make sure food is safe.
It means that of South Ribble’s 109 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 100 (92%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.
Food safety inspections and enforcement
The food hygiene rating reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of the inspection by the local authority.
The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.
Local authorities are responsible for enforcing food hygiene laws and can inspect a business at any point in the food production and distribution process.
Authorised officers from the local council will visit the premises to check the business is complying with food law and producing food that is safe to eat.
To do this, they will look at:
- the premises
- how employees work
- the food safety management system
- the types of food being made and prepared
Authorised officers have the right to enter and inspect the premises at any reasonable time.
They will also usually arrive without making an appointment.
How often the business is routinely inspected will depend on the type of business and its previous record.
Some premises might be inspected at least every six months, others much less often.
Authorised officers will offer help and advice on food safety and they can take action if they find that standards of food hygiene are not good enough.
