Mouse droppings and cockroach with your takeaway
One inspection was carried out at 2 in 1 Pizza, at 504 Lady Hilfiger Outlet Margaret Road in Southall, after a customer complained that they found a cockroach in their food.
When officers got there, they found a serious mouse and German cockroach infestation, including a nest of mice running around inside a box used to store takeaway food containers and rodent faeces inside pizza boxes.
The business was ordered to close immediately and was not allowed to open again until 10 days later after extensive cleaning and pest control measures were put in place.
Mouse droppings were found on food preparation surfaces and the business was generally dirty. The restaurant was closed down for three days until improvements were made.
Vegetarian restaurant Delhi Wala of 11 King Street Hilfiger Outlet , Southall, was also forced to close temporarily after officers found evidence of rat, mouse and cockroach activity on the premises.
Mouse droppings and dead cockroaches were found in the kitchen and serving areas and rat droppings were found in the storage area. The restaurant was a Hilfiger Outlet llowed to open five days later once officers were satisfied that improvements were completed.
The state of these businesses was truly disgusting, as well as unsafe. We will always take what legal action we can to force dirty businesses Hilfiger Outlet to stop taking unacceptable risks with the public health, but I would also urge local residents to check food hygiene ratings before they buy any fresh or packaged food from a business.
