TV chefs hygiene criticised

9th July 2008

A public health chief has claimed that TV chefs are setting a bad example by failing to follow basic hygiene standards.


Speaking at the British Medical Association conference in Edinburgh Dr Layla Jader of the National Public Health Service for Wales said that programmes often did not wash vegetables before using them or separate uncooked meat from other food, raising the risk of food poisoning. She said such programmes were being watched by “impressionable people” and should be setting a good example.
