MOULDY vegetables and rancid smelling meat were found at a Burton shop which scored poorly in a hygiene report.

Medina Supermarket, in Horninglow Road, scored two hygiene stars out of five after the visit from East Staffordshire Borough Council health bosses.

In the visit, the butcher was seen touching goods with gloves he had worn while handling raw meat, the report said.

Concerns were also raised about a walk-in freezer not having its temperature monitored and no hot water in the hand wash basis.

Access to the hand wash basin in the butchery was restricted which prevented food handlers from washing their hands, according to the report.

It also said a carpet in the shop was not suitable for a room where food is prepared because it could not be cleaned properly.

In the report, the inspector said: “On entry to the walk in chiller bags were disposed into a nearby bin.

“On examining the contents of the bags, mouldy okra was found in one and rancid smelling meat in another.”

The owners of the shop were told to make sure stock was rotated to ensure food unfit for humans was not on sale.

Hafoz Uddin who works at the store, said all problems raised in the report have been addressed.

He said: “It is a new shop, we have been open a month and there are small things.

“Everybody who uses us say they appreciate us and our butchery does not smell.”
