Five food outlets in Peterborough have been slammed by food hygiene inspectors for their poor standards.
They all received a zero rating in their most recent inspections, meaning urgent improvement is required.
Peterborough City Council and the Food Standards Agency are urging residents to know their food hygiene ratings ahead of Valentine’s Day next Tuesday, traditionally a day where many eateries are full.
From chip shops to Indian restaurants, cafes to hotels, every business serving food must be inspected by council officials – with each given a rating out of five for food hygiene.
Data from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has found that some 54 eateries in Peterborough failed to meet satisfactory food hygiene standards at the time of their last published inspection.
The good news is most businesses preparing food in the area were ranked three or above.
