Pizza Hut Deals with Mouse Problem
A Manchester city Pizza Hut has had to call in pest inspectors to deal with a mouse problem. The unwanted pest was spotted and photographed by a pedestrian as he wandered by the store before it opened. The mouse was running between tables and nibbling on bits of food, he said.
The man who took the photo was 30 year old John Pringle and he said he sometimes ate at Pizza Hut but would think twice about it in future. Pringle explained that he hoped his photograph would spur Pizza Hut to act fast.
A spokesperson for the company said Pizza Hut takes health and safety very seriously. The company is regularly in contact with pest controllers to stay on top of any pest issues.
In a statement, Pizza Hut said that it took a number of precautionary steps and is confident the situation is under control with no further risk to the public.
Previously, the food outlet received a perfect 5 out of 5 in their last Food Standards Agency assessment in late 2010.
