Fast Food Fans Look Away Now! ‘Most Disgusting’ Fast Food Chains Exposed

Some of the Britain’s favourite fast food chains have been found to have rodent problems dirty food preparation areas and out of date food on their premises.
Local hygiene officers have released their reports to reveal some of the worst offenders in the UK.
The FSA use a ratings scheme out of five.
The chain Chicken Cottage was named as the UK’s ‘most disgusting’ food chain and scored the lowest average hygiene score after the official hygiene inspections. The chain was also named as one of the most dangerous chains after the Labroke Grove branch in London had received 71 reports of gang-related crimes alone.
The officers found mouse droppings on shelves and equipment in one of Domino’s Pizza’s London branches and in Wimpy they discovered that the same utensils were being used to prepare raw and cooked food.
The Brent Cross branch of Burger King was described as the “least disgusting” as it was awarded the highest average score across all of its branches tests on hygiene.
Sussex-based health and safety firm Tutorcare used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the information and used the hygiene inspection scores to make the national average.
The Chicken Cottage chain received a three overall Wimpy a four and Papa Johns scored a little bit high than Chicken Cottage.
The chains with the highest scores were; KFC McDonalds Burger King and Domino’s Pizza scoring between 4 and 5. Burger King scored the highest with 4.85.
The lowest scores of zero were given to a single Chicken Cottage KFC and Dominos.
The Food Hygiene Inspection Report showed that Chicken Cottage in Aylesbury had a lot of failings giving it a Food Hygiene Rating of zero.
The issues that the inspecting Environmental Health Officer reported was the fact that the food in the chiller had no dating on it therefore the employees wouldn’t no how long the meat had been out – and wouldn’t know if the meat was past its sell by date.
The inspecting officer also saw that there was no soap in the hand wash area and was concerned that the employees weren’t washing their hands properly before handling food.
A Domino’s branch in London (the exact location wasn’t released) performed the lowest. The inspecting officer visited the facility in April this year and found mouse droppings on the shelves surfaces and under the equipment and felt that the cleanliness in the chain was poor.
They also found an employee sleeping on food packaging.
On 8 July the food safety inspector recommended some structural repairs and improvement to the Brent Cross Shopping Station in order to try and reduce the pests on the premises.
A mouse was caught in the facility on the 17 July and the inspector outlined that the changes he had pointed out still hadn’t occurred.
Several factors meant that the MacDonalds in Leicester were given a two out of five.
The inspecting food safety officer highlighted the mould on the washing hand trough and equipment sink and the holes in the wall of the boiler room which could cause a pest problem.
