An East London fish and chip shop has been given a low food hygiene rating after inspectors went in to find the toilet ceiling about to collapse.
Following a visit by Food Standards Agency inspectors on 8 August 2022, Bodrum Fish & Chips in Reid Road, Dagenham, was given one out of five.
Inspectors found dirty wash basins and said areas around the canopy were greasy. They also said the toilet ceiling needed to be repaired within a month because it could collapse at any moment, according to a report seen by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.
During the visit, inspectors said the takeaway shop lacked a food safety management system and the temperature of the fridge-freezers was not regularly recorded.
The report noted: “It is necessary to check and record [the] the temperature of your refrigerator and freezer regularly. You need to clean the filter and the surrounding areas of the canopy. He is very fat.
“The ceiling in the toilet needs to be repaired, it is broken and will soon fall. This is related to the previous leak above. We need to wash the sinks, both in the utility room and the toilets.”
The inspectors concluded the report by adding the need for an antibacterial disinfectant that meets the European standard required in the hospitality and food preparation industry.
When Local Democracy Reporting contacted Bodrum Fish & Chips for a response, one worker said it was “all right now” and added that the takeaway was ready for inspectors to visit the premises again.
The shop sells fish and chips as well as pies, burgers, pies and kebabs. There are no previous inspections of Bodrum Fish & Chips on the Food Standards Agency website.
