NSW Food Authority investigating allegations of ‘faeces’ gelato
The NSW Government is investigating allegations of breaches of food safety at a Sydney hotel, Minister for Primary Industries Ian Macdonald said today.The NSW Food Authority has now received an official complaint about the alleged incident at the Coogee Bay Hotel on October 5, in which it has been suggested that a family was served ice cream laced with human faeces.
“This is an issue of public importance and it is essential we speak to as many parties involved in the alleged incident to get all the facts,” Minister Macdonald said. “We are approaching this investigation with an open mind and it’s essential we don’t pre-empt the important work that is now underway.”
“The Food Authority has sent enforcement officers to the hotel today and will work with the family, the hotel, Health Department officials, local council officers and the police to investigate the claims,” Minister Macdonald added.
“I would like to assure consumers that the vast majority of restaurants in NSW do the right thing and put the food safety of the customer first.”
The alleged incident occurred a few weeks ago, when the family was given a free bowl of ice cream following a series of complaints.
