Crystal Palace training ground given zero food rating after mouse problem

0

Crystal Palace have taken “remedial action” after a local council inspection gave their training ground a zero hygiene rating owing to a mouse infestation.

The inspection, which took place in August, led to the catering facilities at the club’s Beckenham headquarters being temporarily shut down whilst the problem was dealt with.

The club said that the issue came to light after work was carried out to upgrade the center’s facilities, and has since been dealt with in accordance with local authority regulations.

The report was published following a freedom of information request made by Kent Live .

“You have been given a food hygiene rating of 0,” said the report from Bromley Council. “This is because the conditions found at the time of inspection were unacceptable. Personally, I am disappointed as you have failed to ensure the safety of the food you are producing and feeding your staff.

“It is clear that you haven’t managed the problem effectively and the activity has been ongoing for several months. You agreed to voluntarily close the kitchen for a few days to address this matter. Appropriate treatment methods must be used to eliminate these pests.”

A statement released by the club confirmed that all problems highlighted in the report have now been corrected.

“The remedial action was approved by the environmental health inspector and we are confident that our five-star rating at Beckenham will be restored when we are re-inspected, in line with our five-star rating for the kitchen facilities at Selhurst Park.”
