The Magic Wok, Newmarket Street, Bare, Morecambe was awarded 0 out of 5 in a council hygiene inspection.

Food inspections carried out by Lancaster City Council’s Environmental Health department on behalf of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), gave two establishments in Morecambe zero out of five.

Indian Delights Market Stall at Winter Gardens, in Northumberland Street, Morecambe, was inspected on September 2, 2012, and Magic Wok, in Newmarket Street, Morecambe, was inspected on September 20, 2012.

Inspections are based on three things - food preparation and storage, the state of the building the food is prepared in, and how those processes are managed by bosses.

Inspectors said the Magic Wok’s food hygiene and safety was ‘bad’, its structural compliance ‘bad’, and that they had ‘no’ confidence in its management, which means a “poor track record of compliance”, “little or no technical knowledge”, “little or no appreciation of hazards or quality control” and “no food safety management system”.

Mandy Li, manager of Magic Wok, said standards had improved since the inspection.

She said: “We have cleaned now and we have tried to clean very well every day.” No contact details were available for the Indian Delights Market Stall.
