A CHINESE takeaway was forced to close for two days after a food inspection deemed there was a potential risk to health.

Bolton Council’s environmental health officers took the action against Star City in Thicketford Road, Tonge Moor, during a visit on February 19.

They found the business to have poor cleanliness standards including the walls, floors, equipment and food surfaces.

Officers feared there would be a risk of cross contamination of raw and ready to eat foods. They found dirty cloths being used for cleaning surfaces and vegetables were not being kept in proper storage.

A hygiene emergency notice was issued against Eu Weng Ang, the owner, forcing the business to close immediately.

But the business took action to improve its hygiene standards, and when environmental health officers from Bolton Council returned on Friday, February 21, they found no concern for people’s health and allowed the takeaway to open its doors again.

Bolton magistrates ruled last week that the decision to close the business had been justified because of the health risk.

Eu Weng Ang said: “We have done the cleaning and everything is good now. We are going to keep to the high standards. We are a busy shop, and we are improving things.”

Can I ask why the comments are open here? They are never open when the shoe is on the, or should I say off the feet of the other sides of our multi-ethnic community.

They were open for Cappucinos, the kebab shops in deane and many other food outlets (except for those thare are pending court cases as, by law - which has been in place for at least 250 years, any publication "could" distort the outcome!!!)

Therefore you are wrong to what you have. All you need to do is use the search engine of this website to see the variopus food outlets mentioned and the diverse owners that have been prosecuted or warned!!!!!


Lets not let the truth get the way of urban myth, though!

What was Wayne Walkers hygiene rating again?

oh yes it was a zero....0......URGEN
T IMPROVEMENT NECESSARY!!

yet when i poked my head in over the weekend there was a good 50/60 people blissfully unaware what they are buying.

Are these hygiene ratings designed to warn/inform the public. I asked Bolton news to run a story on this in the interest in public safety. And i was told its unlikely to happen due to the advertising that Wayne Walker spends with BN.

All this Chinese chippy had to do was advertise in the paper and they would have been safe!!

How is my post negative when I actually pointed out that other news reports with regards to hygiene (which isn't all about hygiene but also the rapport between business owner and inspector - which actually accounts for about 50% of the final grade!!!!) are open to comments and the various reports are fromm all spectrum of international foods and owners!!!

You never get a second chance to make a first impression these and other food outlets that have to be told to clean up their act should never be allowed to trade
