Belfast takeaway hit with fine for food hygiene offences
A Belfast takeaway has been hit with a £300 fine for food hygiene offences.
Belfast City Council took a case against Aissa Necighi, owner of kebab shop Miroosh on 81 Dublin Road, Belfast, after serious breaches of food hygiene legislation were found during a routine inspection.
Follow-up inspections have found improved conditions at the business.
Necighi appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court in relation to five separate food hygiene offences.
These included failing to ensure that there was hot water available at the wash-hand basins, failing to make sure that kitchen utensils that came into contact with food were effectively cleaned and disinfected, and failing to ensure that the food production areas were kept clean.
The breaches were identified between 21 March 2016 and 4 May 2016.
The takeaway has since been given a rating of three in relation to the Food Standards Agency's National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme, which means that standards at the restaurant are generally satisfactory.
Ratings for any food premises in Belfast can be viewed on the council's website.
