Two brothers have been ordered to pay more than £5,000 each in fines and costs after hygiene problems were uncovered at a Bradford takeaway they own.
The court heard their Raja’s Chicken Bar outlet in Whetley Lane failed two Bradford Council inspections in October 2012 and June 2013. Issues included cross-contamination between raw chicken and ready-to-eat lettuce, staff not following correct procedures for washing and food debris in hand-wash basins.
Farooq and Waqas were each fined £3,600 and ordered to pay £1,486 in costs and a £120 victim surcharge. In mitigation, the court heard they had not known of the problems and sacked their manager when they found out.
