A shop has been fined after its bosses admitted selling out-of-date food.

The owner of Singh News Market in Lye High Street has been ordered to pay £27,000 after environmental health officers found meat and dairy products being sold past their use-by dates.

The oldest item was still on sale almost a month after its use-by date, magistrates heard.

Dudley Council said it hoped the "hefty financial penalty" would deter other offenders.

Naginder Singh, of Hurcott Road, in Kidderminster, pleaded guilty to 10 offences of selling unsafe food at Dudley Magistrates' Court on 6 April.

During the inspection in March 2021, a basket of 25 products, including cooked ham, Dairylea Lunchables and yogurt, was found near the counter of the mini-market during the visit

The earliest use-by date in the haul was 8 February - on display 28 days after the date had expired, the court was told.

Kidderminster-based Newsmarket (Midlands) Ltd, which runs the store, has also been ordered to pay court costs of £1,982.70 and a victim surcharge of £1,800. 

Kevin O'Keefe, chief executive of Dudley Council said: "I welcome the verdict of the magistrates in this case and the hefty financial penalty handed out for these offences.

"It is important that we take action to help keep our residents safe, and it will also act hopefully as a deterrent to other businesses in the borough thinking of doing the same."

    • Look, the same points you made about Gujarati Kenyans, I can say the same thing about Sikh/Punjabi Kenyans. They were more educated on average than immigrants direct from India.  I worked with a Gujarati from India and he told me that Gujaratis are not known for being educated.  Compare Gujaratis from Kenya to Punjabis from Kenya and also Gujaratis from India to Punjabis from India. 
    • Stop marrying these Punjabans and shipping them over to the West. There's no excuse for it in this day and age. You're not getting an obedient, dutiful, demure female from over there. They don't respect Western born guys unless they're complete gundeh, in which case they bring a who!e new set of problems to the table. The common religion between the two parties is a misleading trait. It's irrelevant. Cultural values and upbringing is where it's at. Baba and dera culture has spiralled out of control in Punjab. It's a miracle to find a family that isn't into this stuff. Your brother needs to make her see sense. He needs to lead and be worth following. He needs to stop hiding behind mummy and daddy, and grow a pair so that the wife's previous beliefs, whatever they are, she willingly discards in favour of her husband's values. A woman automatically does this when she perceives her man is worth deferring to. If she's playing up, she's detected a weakness, and she's exploiting it. So the problem of her running around after pandits is irrelevant. The issue is that your brother has been unable to put an end to this bukwaas for the sake of stabilising his married life and home. That's his fault.

      And that was in India in a BJP ruled state. Interesting all 5 of the high caste Muslim rapist-killers had the first name of Mohammed.  So why is anyone surprised when Muslim men exploit non-Muslim women in the UK and  all over the world?
