Hygiene standards were ignored, handwashing sucked, and food was open to contamination, so the operator of the Shapla Tandoori in Inverness, U.K., was fined £4,000 at Inverness Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
BBC News reported that environmental health officer Patricia Sheldon said,
"Even the most basic principles of food hygiene and safety were clearly being ignored at the time of our visit, including the provision of suitable hand washing facilities, keeping the premises clean and storing and handling food safely."
