Booths denies food hygiene breaches at Lytham store

Posted: February 5th, 2013 by Craig comment-icon Comments disabled

The supermarket chain Booths is denying that there are any food hygiene concerns at its flagship store in Lytham St Anne’s in Lancashire, despite being accused of more than 20 breaches in a recent court case.

The company, which has its head office in Preston, is being prosecuted by Fylde Borough Council over allegations relating to hygiene standards for certain foods sold at the Lytham store, which include:

• Polish meat
• Pate
• Cured beef
• Sunblush tomatoes
• Pesto
• Cous cous
• Seafood salad
• Fish (including haddock, kippers, cod loin and smoked cod)
• Shellfish cockles
• Clams and mussels
• Live oysters

There are also three allegations relating to an ox tongue infected with listeria which was sold to a customer, as well as accusations concerning food safety management training and the sell-by dates of products.

The EH Booths group, which has around 28 stores in the North and has a yearly revenue of £280 million, is denying the allegations made against the Lytham store and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The case, originally heard at Blackpool Magistrates Court, will be adjourned for a few months until August, when more details are likely to emerge.
