A cluster of eateries in Sydney’s CBD has been slapped with fines totalling $30,000 for hygiene offences including having live cockroaches, rodent droppings and human hair in the kitchen.
The appalling state of the four lunchtime takeaway outlets in the busy Hunter Arcade on Hunter Street has startled hygiene inspectors and will refocus state government efforts to improve food health in NSW.
Food hygiene inspectors from Sydney City Council discovered a series of health breaches at the Asian eateries where the rush to feed thousands of city workers appears to have taken priority over event the most basic hygiene measures.
Inspectors found Pho Ha Noi Vietnamese Noodle Soup, Hong Hai Noodle Bar, Top One Kitchen and Khwan Thai all failed to comply with hygiene standards – even after previous warnings to clean up their act.
Pho Ha Noi was prosecuted twice for multiple failures to comply with the Food Act, including storing prepared food just centimetres off the floor, and issued with fines totalling $8050.
Hong Hai Noodle Bar was issued with three prosecutions and fined $7250. Inspectors observed live cockroaches in the kitchen.
Top One Kitchen was fined $3800 and Kwan Thai $1700.
All four businesses will be placed on the NSW Food Authority’s name-and-shame list today.
The woeful state of the kitchens will be a shock for city workers who assume that the CBD outlets, with their more expensive menus, would be cleaner than some suburban restaurants.
In the past 30 days, 140 food businesses around NSW have been placed on the name-and-shame register. Of those, 10 were in the Sydney CBD.
The Primary Industries Minister, Steven Whan, said the name-and-shame list, maintained as a partnership between the state government and local councils, had proved an effective measure in raising hygiene standards.
“The vast majority of Sydney and NSW businesses do the right think and to protect these businesses and consumers we will continue to expose the prosecute those who flout the law,” he said.
The NSW Food Authority recently began trials of a new ratings system, dubbed “scores on doors”, which will give consumers a new level of clarity when choosing to patronise any of the state’s 20,000 registered food outlets.
The scheme will enable restaurants, cafes and takeaways that submit to scrutiny by hygiene inspectors to display a simple A, B or C rating as a guide for customers.
The Food Authority is also targeting food outlets that spread colds, flu and stomach viruses by forcing their employees to work while they are sick.
A hotline has been set up to dob in offenders.
