UK: Food Standards Agency to set up local performance tables on food safety
The new Food Standards Agency is to monitor performance on food safety after a study on enforcement revealed that almost half of the food premises inspected in the UK last year broke food safety rules and that infringements have increased by 11% over the last three years. Of the 381,617 food premises inspected by local environmental health officers, 179,897 had broken food safety rules in 1999. This compares with 161,671 breaking the rules in 1997 out of 363,594 inspected. While infringements have increased by 11%, the number of food premises increased by 10%. Most of the breaches are relatively minor.
