Hyde take-away ‘put profit before public health’
A filthy take-away was closed down after health inspectors found sewage and an electric fly killer so full of dead insects that it was no longer working properly.
A court hearing was told that The Chicken Hut, in Hyde, ‘put profit before public health’.
An inspection of the Market Street takeaway in June last year found it stinking of sewage. The floor had been pulled back, due to a problem with the drainage system, to reveal a manhole cover where health inspectors could see sewage.
They also found a catalogue of other problems including ‘an accumulation of waste’, poorly-lit store rooms, food stored at the wrong temperatures, a dirty toilet, staff wearing open-toed sandals and dough products stored on the floor. Read more: Manchester Evening News
Never mind the filthy conditions, the fact that this establishment advertised its food as halal should be warning enough. The savage practice of ritualistic animal slaughter/torture has no place in a civilized society and as a genuine animal lover I feel so strongly about this issue that I honestly have little sympathy for anyone who may have consumed the rancid products served up as food in this establishment.
If you willingly consume halal food you are aiding and abetting the torturing to death of defenceless animals. All slaughter is a bloody and nasty business but religious ritual slaughter is on a completely different level. If you doubt me watch this video but please be warned that it does contain scenes of extreme animal cruelty. If you count yourself as an animal lover or even if you just feel uncomfortable about animal cruelty please do avoid purchasing ritually slaughtered meat products. Tameside Citizen
