No Blayney Shire eateries have made it the current NSW Food Authority ‘name and shame’ list of retail food premises fined for not meeting health standards.
Blayney council’s environmental services director, Leon Rodwell, said: “”All [food] premises have been inspected and reinspected as required to meet the legislation … they are compliant or upgrading. We do not list individual premises.”
Before the Blayney Chronicle went to press, it had yet to receive clarification from council about whether those premises which were “upgrading” had been fined or cautioned.
Blayney shire general manager Glenn Willcox said council contracts it food inspectors from Bathurst Regional Council.
“If you ping [fine] shops as a Blayney Council officer [eating in Blayney Shire], you are not going to be very popular. Similarly, for Bathurst, if they have a curly one, they want one of our blokes to go into the [food premises] and ping them,” he said.
