"The former owner of a north Wales takeaway at the centre of an E.coli outbreak has admitted food hygiene offences. Ramazan Aslan, who had run the Llay Fish Bar near Wrexham, admitted seven charges brought by Wrexham's environmental health department. Four people became seriously ill after contracting the bug in the August 2009 outbreak... [he] admitted failing to protect food in July 2009, with cooked and ready-to-eat food not protected against contamination during production, processing and distribution... He also failed to notify the council that he had become the food business operator at the fish bar .... failed to put in place permanent procedures to identify hazards or corrective actions..... failed to ensure that his food management procedures were up to date, and failed to have adequate pest control procedures. Doors were said to be kept open without insect-proof screens and an electrical fly killer was not working. There no materials for the cleaning or hygienic drying of hands in the food preparation area, no hand drying materials in the staff WC, and the hand wash basin was not available for washing hands because it was used for storing clothes. Aslan also admitted that while being responsible for the development of a food safety management procedure at the premises, he had received inadequate training."
