Tesco store riddled with dirt and old ham
Tesco in Slough is filthy, and not in a good way. Customer Sylvia Tyler was browsing in the Slough branch of the store when she found that the shelves were covered in grime, crumbs and general detritus. When she asked the manager why they were in such a grotty state, she was told that the shelves were ‘difficult to clean.’
Sylv was having a look at the Reduced to Clear section when she first noticed the dirt, including a long neglected packet of ham that was wedged down a gap in the shelves. When she complained to the manager, however, he seemed ‘blasé’. Two weeks later, it was in a worse state, and THE SAME PACK OF HAM WAS STILL THERE. She then reported the store to Environmental Health.
Tesco, who got into trouble last year after their Covent Garden store was found to be infested with mice and covered in droppings, said the Slough store had now been deep cleaned, (and presumably blasé managers have been given their marching orders.)
'We maintain very high standards of hygiene and cleanliness in our stores, and we're disappointed that those were not met on this occasion,' said a spokesman.'Colleagues regularly deep-clean all of the shelving in the stores and we've taken action to return the shelves to their usual high standards.’
