Food and Safety Advice for the Public

Common food complaints

  • Food contaminated with a foreign body e.g. hair, plastic, glass, insect.
  • Under-cooked food.
  • Deteriorated food e.g. mouldy.
  • Food that had an unpleasant taste.
  • Food that was out of date.

Not all of these pose a risk to public health or safety, so an officer will assess each complaint to determine the most appropriate course of action.
