Six establishments in Cornwall have received a 'no stars' rating from the Food Standards Agency for hygiene - the lowest mark available.

The agency rates all food outlets, and gives them scores ranging from five stars down to no stars - with the lowest rating meaning urgent action is required to bring hygiene standards to an acceptable level.

With 3,465 establisments inspected across the Duchy, it means just 0.17% of all Cornish food outlets received the lowest score.

A total of 155 outlets across Cornwall recieved a one star rating - which means major improvement is required, while an impressive 1,713 were handed the top mark of five stars.

    How do we know that they haven't been contacted, we only have your word that they have not. If they do not improve their premises and practices then they will be taken to court and that is when we will all have opportunity to hear their side of the argument. I can assure you that I am not a member of the TIC team, I couldn't have such a dull, boring life.

    JeremyBadger "14th November 2013," OK regardless of who is reporting why no contact with the food outlets mentioned? Are they all still in business? Should their voice be heard? The FSA have published this info don't we need a paper to inform us of the other side of the story, in fact what is your problem with that? I reckon you are part of the thisiscornwall team! If that is the case it is indefensible, even if not I still think you should open your eyes you are looking like a follow sheep type to me!

    Oh, I see lovelycornwal, you mean like "The Packet"s reporting on the 14th November 2013, on-line edition........ "PEOPLE planning on enjoying a meal out this festive season are being urged to check the hygiene rating of their chosen restaurant. The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme rates food businesses on their hygiene standards, based on inspections carried out by Sedgemoor District Council. " Sorry to disappoint but I am afraid that all newspapers and all other media have to report on press releases from Statutory Bodies or however else would we find out what is happening?

    "When this remedial action is taken they can then reapply to be re-assessed, what is wrong with that?" JerermyBadger nothing wrong with that at all and it is not about the rating anyway. I feel thisiscornwall could spend sometime doing a better job on the content, lets have someone write a story about this, it could be worst than they FSA painted for all we know, but to balance the many copy and paste articles we see here lets have some Journalistic input, wouldn't that be better? At least over at the falmouth packet/bbc they can manage to write with some knowledge on many stories why is it so lacking here?

    No matter what these businesses have to say on the matter they cannot escape from the fact that on a spot check they were found to be deficient in matters of hygiene and were marked accordingly meaning that urgent action was required to bring hygiene standards to an acceptable level. When this remedial action is taken they can then reapply to be re-assessed, what is wrong with that?

    'Journalistic integrity is based on the principles of truth, accuracy and factual knowledge.' This on line newspaper is a sham. If all it is going to do is post online content from other sources then that can not be journalism. It owns many news sites but fails on this one to attempt any real investigative journalism to discover and examine the facts. Taking this copy and paste article is exposing this very problem and these businesses would benefit from a balanced informed approach from a big online newspapers. In other words you haven't given them a voice. I am not connected in anyway to any of the businesses mentioned in this article and I have never been to any of them before. You should at the very least have given these businesses a chance to speak but you haven't, WHY NOT. Please post your answer here...
