Burnley takeaway must improve following food hygiene rating
A Burnley takeaway has been handed a new two-out-of-five food hygiene rating, meaning that improvement is necessary.
Run by the Food Standards Agency, the scheme helps consumers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving clear information about the businesses’ hygiene standards. It is run in partnership with local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Of Burnley's 142 takeaways with ratings, 78 (55%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.
Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.
