Case 57 - Museum cafeteria refused to serve child a soft-boiled egg on the grounds of "Health and Safety".

Issue

A Museum cafeteria refused to serve a five year old a dippy (ie; soft-boiled) egg on the grounds of "Health and Safety".

Panel decision

Whatever the reason for the museum's decision not to serve "dippy" (ie; soft-boiled) eggs, it would be better if they were transparent about this, rather than incorrectly justifying the decision on health and safety grounds.
