    Grimsby takeaway fined £1,814 for risk of food poisoning

    By Rob Steen on April 19, 2015

    A takeaway in Grimsby has been fined £1,814 after environmental health inspectors revealed poor food hygiene standards that could increase the risk of food poisoning. The Moghul Empire takeaway, owned by 31-year-old Mohammed Jakir, has a history of non-compliance with food hygiene requirements. The latest inspection found poorly installed electric sockets in the kitchen, blocked waste pipes, poor food hygiene and uncovered containers of cooked meat and rice left in the kitchen, posing a risk of food poisoning.

    This latest report follows reports of serious cleanliness issues in November 2010 and July 2011. Due to the food hygiene rating of zero stars last year, the takeaway saw weekly turnover drop from £6,000 to £1,800 for four weeks, with several members of staff losing their jobs, but lately things have started to improve. Jakir was fined £1,400 and £364 costs, plus a £50 victims’ surcharge. He said, “All the matters of concern by the local authorities have now been rectified and further changes put in place. Staff are continually training to ensure the guidelines are met. We are working closely with the local authorities to ensure all is well.”

    Food poisoning symptoms

    Have you suffered food poisoning after ordering food from your local Indian takeaway? If so, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, but there’s a three-year time limit in place to do so. Symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, and although most people get better quite quickly, if symptoms persist, you may need medical attention. You can contact a personal injury lawyer to find out if you have an eligible claim and it’s best to find a law firm which offer a 100% no win, no fee* service, so you won’t have to worry about paying upfront legal fees; you’ll only pay if your claim is successful.
