Case 102 - Hotel chain claims it cannot serve burgers anything other than well done because of Health and Safety

Issue

A hotel chain has claimed it was unable to serve burgers anything other than well done because of Health and Safety Laws.

Panel decision

The safety of food served in restaurants is not covered by occupational health and safety legislation but by Food Safety Regulations, which are the responsibility of a different regulator. The Food Standards Agency's website offers advice on requirements for cooked meat.
