REVEALED: Bundy eateries with 3, 4 and 5 star safety ratings

A REPORT has revealed 23 improvement notices have been handed to local food businesses across the Bundaberg region after a total of 645 inspections in the last financial year.

The report findings from the Queensland Health Food Safety Act 2006 for the 2018/19 financial year were released last month.

The report is published annually and breaks down how many inspections and improvement notices were conducted and distributed across Queensland local government areas.

The inspections included 606 routine or scheduled inspections, 30 follow-up or reinspections and nine complaint related inspections.

The report also showed 56 complaints had been received about local food businesses in the 2018/19 financial year.

Seventy-three licences were also surrendered by licensees.

Last month also saw Bundaberg Regional Council release their Eat Safe star ratings for local businesses.

Eat Safe is a regulatory scheme where local food businesses receive a star rating based on their compliance with the Food Act 2006.

 

Bundaberg Brewed Drinks was one business who received a five star rating in council’s Eat Safe report.
Bundaberg Brewed Drinks was one business who received a five star rating in council’s Eat Safe report.

 

At the end of an audit, food businesses receive a star rating which council says provides assistance and incentive for businesses to comply with food safety laws and achieve the highest standards in food safety.

How did Bundy businesses do?

Not all Bundaberg region food businesses were listed in the report.

These are some reasons the council listed why some businesses aren't named in their report:

- Received a food safety rating of less than three stars

- Received a food safety rating of three or more stars, but has not agreed to have its star rating displayed

- Not paid its annual food license fee to council

- Recently opened as a new business or changed owners and has not been audited yet

The below star ratings are from the latest available report dated October 8, 2020.
