Problems or concerns about poor hygiene and safety in a food outlet or a trading standards issue such as food mislabelling should be reported to the local authority.
- Environmental Health Officers handle complaints about food quality, hygiene and safety issues.
- Trading Standards Officers handle complaints about food labelling, ingredients, and weights and measures.
- In Scotland and Northern Ireland, Environmental Health Officers deal with all food law enforcement matters.
If you have any suspicions about food being offered for sale, for example, if the meat being sold is unusually cheap and you have concerns about where meat has come from, please report it to the local authority. Please include as much detail as possible in your message, including your name and number.
