You have a duty to report, respond to and prevent food incidents in the workplace so when/if one occurs then you may need the support of an experienced Food Safety Consultant.
A food incident is when there is concern, or evidence that, food prepared, handled or served by your business does not meet the required legal standards; therefore, potentially putting the consumers’ health at risk.
This can include:
- contamination of food
- poor labelling
- environmental pollution from chemical spills or packaging
Reporting a Food Incident
If you suspect or are aware of a food incident at your business then you must inform your local authority/port health authority and the Food Standards Agency.
This means completing a Food and Feed Incident Report Form as soon as possible and reviewing your current Food Safety Management System to assess where things may have gone wrong and how they can be improved.
