A PONTYPOOL delicatessen was fined after cooked foods were stored below raw meat.

A hygiene inspection in Phil’s Pantry in Pontypool Indoor Market also found there were no towels to dry hands.

The inspection also discovered cooked foods in a fridge stored next to and below raw meat.

Food safety records suggested food safety checks had been carried out on foods which had not been delivered and towels for hand drying were available when they were not.

The owner, Philip Jolliffe, pleaded guilty, and was fined £225 with £200 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

When are these lying and lazy scum going to be put out of business? Falsifying safety check records and putting consumers at risk by putting raw meat next to cooked meat, a £225 fine is just not enough to deter these idiots. Put them out of business. If the council wont do it i suggest consumers boycott them and spend their money somewhere else.
