Food safety hit list

Sydney Restaurants Named And Shamed

It’s the list no Sydney restaurant or cafe wants to be on.

The NSW Food Authority's "Name and Shame" register is now in its ninth year, keeping food retailers, restaurants and cafes across the state in check.

There are currently 1409 penalty notices in the register, including 153 issued in the past month.

"I am pleased to say the vast majority of food businesses in NSW do the right thing – however those which don’t face the significant sanction of featuring on the well-read register," said Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair.

"This puts the power in the hands of the consumer and gives them confidence and certainty when choosing where to dine."

Following is a list of Sydney food businesses issued with more than one penalty notice, but you can also check whether any of your local restaurants or food retailers feature in the "Name and Shame" register here:

A Sydney chicken producer trading as Bill's Chicken at Moorebank was also convicted and fined $34,000 last month after falling foul of the food safety laws.

The NSW Food Authority discovered chicken meat being transported for sale in rusted and corroded trolleys and benches, along with no soap or paper towel in staff change rooms for hand washing, and unclean processing equipment and utensils.

Minister Blair said the biggest success of the "Name and Shame" register is that there are very few repeat offenders.

"It serves as an excellent deterrent because once a food business has made the shame file, they certainly don’t want to appear again,” Mr Blair said.
