Free Press Series: Curry house staff 'licked their fingers' while handling food Curry house staff 'licked their fingers' while handling food

A TORFAEN takeaway was fined for a series of food hygiene breaches.

Newport magistrate's court heard that food handlers at Naseeb Tandoori take-away in Broad Street, Blaenavon, did not display a high degree of personal hygiene, including not wearing suitable protective over-clothing, staff licking their fingers during food handling and not using soap to thoroughly wash their hands.

Foods were not being chilled, and staff were not disinfecting worktops.

Sajjad Ali admitted the offences and was fined £375 with £220 costs.

Personnel should always wash their hands when personal cleanliness may affect food safety, for example:

- at the start of food handling activities;

- immediately after using the toilet; and

- after handling raw food or any contaminated material, where this could result in contamination of other food items; they should avoid handling ready-to-eat food, where appropriate.

7.4 PERSONAL BEHAVIOUR

People engaged in food handling activities should refrain from behaviour which could result in contamination of food, for example:

- smoking;

- spitting;

- chewing or eating;

- sneezing or coughing over unprotected food.

Personal effects such as jewellery, watches, pins or other items should not be worn or brought into food handling areas if they pose a threat to the safety and suitability of food.

I find it annoying at supermarket checkouts when they asks if you would like a carrier bag, you say yes please then they lick thir fingers first to open the bag for you! Tesco and M&S I find the worst for this.

Don’t lick your fingers people there is no need when opening bags or turning the pages of a book or newspaper. Little wonder germs are easily spread. complain if it happens or just use the self checkout.

If any take-away has illegal workers then you can bet they have not undergone basic hygiene training so what can you expect. Not that this applies in this case, but a quiet weekend here I bet.

another reason why I dont go near these so called quality establishments - minging examples of sloppy food that bears no resemblance to Indian food - its only the ones that get caught on the day bet there are endless others with good food ratings that have disgusting practices. Cook from home its safer, cheaper and healthier.

These food hygene regulations come from the EU, and are therefore just rubbish red tape.

When UKIP win the next general election all this EU food hygene regulation rubbish will be repealed, and less stringent British Regulations introduced.

Lets get back to the good old Filthy British Greasy Spoon Caf !!!

displayed-all that stuff is pure common sense. It doesn't need a clerk on £165 K to write it down. And its having been written down makes no difference to those from alien cultures to whom our Welsh common sense, and most of our other Welsh values, are quite meaningless.

Answer to this is just don't go there.
You would think that any establishment with a zero rating would be forced to close until remedial action is taken
