Food Standards Agency audits into the 2 Sisters Food Group sites enmeshed in The Guardian poultry investigation have found both sites to be adequate.
The audits were carried out following allegations in the broadsheet that the UK poultry industry was guilty of hygiene breaches that could spread the campylobacter bug.
Best case outcome of the FSA audits is ‘good’, followed by ‘generally satisfactory’, ‘improvement necessary’ and ‘urgent improvement necessary’. 2 Sisters’ Scunthorpe plant was rated ‘good’ with Llangefni in Wales marked ‘generally satisfactory’.
Health minister Jeremy Hunt ordered the inspections last week to reassure the public of the safety of food they buy.
