Bogus letter warning
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is warning food business operators about bogus letters claiming to be from the FSA demanding payment for supposed breaches of food safety regulations. The one letter that has been drawn to the Agency’s attention demands payment of £1000 as acceptable standards of hygiene have been breached.
The FSA is warning food business operators that if they receive any letters claiming to be from the Agency, they should not send the money and instead report the letter to their local police.
The FSA is not the national enforcement authority for food law and would not be sending any such letters demanding payment. Any breaches of food hygiene regulations are dealt with by local authorities.
A copy of the fraudulent letter can be found at the FSA website (PDF, 127Kb).
