Sampling Continues To Clamp Down On Dangerous Food

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is the most active council in the UK with regards to clamping down on dangerous food and drink. The council completed the greatest number of samples, sending most of them to laboratories for microbiological examination, with 225 samples being sent to the Public Analyst. Most were found to be satisfactory but of the rest, one case led to the closure of a factory in the London area after it supplied sandwiches to a newsagents shop in the East Riding. A sandwich sampled by the council’s food safety team contained the pathogen listeria monocytogenes which can give rise to listeriosis, a potentially fatal condition that can cause stillbirths in pregnant women and severe illness in the elderly and young. The council passed the information to the London authority resulting in the factory being served with an Emergency Prohibition Notice to stop further production. There are about 3,700 food and drink outlets, such as bars, takeaways, restaurants, shops and stores across the East Riding, including 970 in the Bridlington and Driffield area, 1,022 in the Beverley area, 790 in South Holderness and 1,000 in the Goole, Pocklington and Market Weighton areas. Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for […]

Smoke Alarm Alerts Parents To Children’s Bedroom Fire

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is reminding residents of the need for keeping matches and lighters outside of children’s reach after attending a property fire in Driffield on 18 January, 2014. The emergency call was received at 10.28 and two engines from Driffield Fire Station were at the property by 10.36. Despite the fire having been extinguished prior to their arrival, a fire investigation officer assessed the scene and established that a lighter had been the cause of the fire in the children’s bedroom. Fire Investigation Officer Gary Chew said: “Thankfully no one was seriously injured as a result of this incident. Fortunately, the residents had a working smoke alarm, which alerted them to the danger, otherwise the end result might have been a great deal worse”. Gary went on to mention another common increased risk having established the cause of the fire: “Bedrooms can often be a fire hazard as wooden furniture, beds, cushions, soft toys, games and clothes are usually in a quite confined space, which, if ignited, could spread very quickly. We would urge parents to be aware of this potential fire risk and certainly to keep matches and lighters well out of children’s reach”. For more […]
