    Hull’s Nuffield Health Café under Scrutiny after Being Handed a Food Hygiene Rating of Zero

    The café in popular gym chain Nuffield Fitness and Wellbeing had been temporarily closed in December last year after being handed a zero food hygiene rating following an inspection. The gym, located in Kingston Park in Hull’s city centre, was found to have vast amounts of out-of-date food, faulty appliances and filthy equipment.

    Following the inspection, the gym voluntarily closed for 4 days from December 2nd-5th 2016 to carry out an emergency deep clean. Since reopening on the 6th, standards are said to have improved.

    The result of the inspection found all three areas (Hygienic food handling, Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building, and Management of food safe) at ‘urgent improvement necessary’ following the discovery of the shocking conditions.

    "A container of tomatoes was found in the refrigerator which was in a mouldy condition. It is an offence to sell food which is unfit for human consumption” says an inspector in the report on the café.

    There was also observation of cross-contamination when handling raw eggs before salad leaves, with no hand washing taking place in-between. Not just due to poor practice either, as there was no actually soap in the cafe, and hadn’t been for several months, admitted by a staff member.

    The report continues in saying Food handlers were also noted to be touching the waste bin lid on a regular basis which was found to be in a dirty condition."

    A spokeswoman from Nuffield Health calls that a reinspection will occur as soon as possible to improve the rating from the Food Standards Agency.

    As reported by Hull Daily Mail, Hull City Council’s principal environmental health officer Paul Turner encourages reinspection for businesses with low scores: "Applications for reinspection/rescores have steadily increased since 2012 but we'd very much like to increase the application rate and improve the compliance rates across the city.”
