Nanny Unbans Cakes

On Tuesday I wrote that Nanny had banned a mother and daughter from selling homemade cakes at the daughter's school, because of health and safety concerns.

It seems that this story and other similar ones have prompted the Food Standards Authority (FSA) to engage its brain and apply some commonsense. My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to the  FSA statement that volunteer cooks and charity groups, who occasionally prepare food for community events, are not covered by EU laws that have been invoked to ban people from preparing food on an occasional basis for others to consume.

This means that occasional cooks are no longer need to possess a food hygiene certificate before they are allowed to offer their wares for sale.

As per the Mail:
"There is no rule banning the sale of homemade cakes at school fĂȘtes or other community events."
Nice to see the FSA using some commonsense!

  1. The FSA may well have shown some commonsense here however, will the schools actually take this on board? I doubt it because I still feel all too many schools have staff that are drunk on their perceived power.

    That is the problem! Too many jobsworths in positions of authority, whose only pleasures seem to be bossing other people about and spoiling their enjoyment! What is the betting that this revised ruling only came about because someone 'high up' didn't like the adverse publicity?
