THE Brick Oven pizza takeaway in Mansfield Road, in the city centre, was inspected and scored zero points for food hygiene. The food inspector found:
Generally standards were poor and there were no written food-safety management systems.
The premises and equipment were dirty, and there was no food safety monitoring in place.
Food handlers had no food hygiene training.
There was no wash hand basin.
The rear preparation room walls were badly flaking and could not be kept clean, and might contaminate food by flakes of paint and plaster falling into food.
The floor in the kitchen, the fridges in the shop and preparation room and cooking equipment very dirty and required a deep clean.
Owner Irfan Akram said he had only just taken over the takeaway when the food inspection was carried out.
He said: "We have made all the changes that need to be made, and we are waiting to be inspected again.
"I was not aware I had to have the food hygiene training when I took over the shop. I had never before been involved in the catering business, but I have now completed that course.
"A food inspector has since been to the store, and said that she is happy with the changes, but we are waiting to be regraded. We have had good reviews from magazines like Left Lion."
