A SUPERMARKET in Burton has been told to clean up its act after a number of health concerns were raised following a hygiene inspection.
Bosses at Morrisons, in Branston, have been ordered to make a raft of immediate improvements after inspectors scrutinised its kitchens.
The inspection focused on all aspects of the store, including its cake shop, salad bar and bakery.
Bags of rubbish were found piled on top of sinks while a member of staff was seen to leave the raw production area without washing their hands.
Food trays were found stored on the floor close to bins, while staff were also seen opening packaging on the floor.
A box of disposable gloves was also found to be in a ‘contaminated condition’, while staff were also said to be ‘guessing’ the amount of cleaning chemicals that were being used.
In addition, no documents stating the store’s food management systems could be provided when asked for.
Despite the concerns raised in the inspection report, Morrisons still managed to achieve an overall rating of ‘good’, although the hygiene section of the inspection was where the store performed worst.
It was given 10 out of a possible 30 hazard points for its food and hygiene safety and was told to address the concerns raised immediately.
The report read: “One of the handwash basins in the cake shop was obstructed from use by the positioning of a bag of waste situated on it and boxes stored underneath. In addition, a box of disposable gloves was being stored at the back of the sink and were found in a contaminated condition.”
The report advised that all obstructions should be removed immediately and that gloves are stored in a hygienic manner.
Despite several attempts by the Mail, Morrisons failed to provide a response.
