Restaurants for Valentine’s – advice from National Accident Helpline

Share Article

National Accident Helpline is advising people to choose carefully on where they eat out this Valentine’s Day by checking the National Food Hygiene Scheme, introduced by The Food Standards Agency (FSA) last year.

National Accident Helpline emphasises the importance of choosing wisely when it comes to restaurants for Valentine's Day.

National Accident Helpline urges people to take care when choosing a restaurant for Valentine's Day.

We want to ensure that people are aware of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

To help prevent food poisoning, National Accident Helpline has released a statement encouraging people to check the food hygiene rating of restaurants before making their choice on where to take their loved one tomorrow for a Valentine’s Day meal.

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme has been developed to help people choose where to eat out by providing ratings in restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways and hotels on their hygiene standards.

The ratings are calculated on how hygienically the food is handled, the condition of the premises including cleanliness, ventilation and layout, and how food safety is managed and documented.

National Accident Helpline’s Consumer Director, Beth Powell, said: “Thousands of people will be taking their loved ones to restaurants for Valentine’s Day. We want to ensure that people are aware of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme and choose to eat at places with good hygiene standards."

Powell continued, “A lot of people don’t realise that food poisoning can cause people to become extremely ill, or in severe cases, can even be fatal. If you’ve suffered from food poisoning that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.”

For further information on the scheme or to view full national ratings, visit the Food Standards Agency website.
