Hull Takeaway fined for serving broken glass in food
A Hull takeaway has been fined after a customer found broken glass in their food.
Golden Bridge Takeaway, on Hessle Road, served up a stir fried beef with onions that contained a shard of glass from a broken sweet chilli bottle in May 2012.
An investigation by Hull City Council’s Environmental Health Officers revealed the chef, Mr Hai Xiang Li, was aware of the broken bottle but had failed to adequately clean and check the area after the breakage.
Owners F Data Limited and chef, Mr Hai Xiang Li, pleaded guilty of food safety offences at Hull Magistrates Court on Friday 23 November. They were each fined £750 and each required to pay Hull City Council costs of £750, a victim surcharge of £25 and the Court also awarded the victim who purchased the meal a sum of £50.

Councillor John Hewitt, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods and Communities, said: “This was a very serious matter and the consumer was placed at a great risk of major injury, thankfully the glass was discovered on the plate before being eaten.”
He added, “Simple precautions were not taken after the breakage to clean the surrounding areas and to dispose of the open food around the breakage area.”
