UK NEWS: SOUTHWARK COUNCIL CLOSES RAT INFESTED MEAT STORE IN PECKHAM
Ash Meat and Fish Centre in Peckham closed under emergency orders due to serious rat, mouse and insect infestation. Inspectors found food that had been nawed by rats, rat and mouse droppings amongst food items and four rat carcasses on the premises.
Listen to what a few members of the public had to say…
The news report made me laugh but the story is in fact true. Ash Meat and Fish Centre was closed down and I am not surprised.
Councillor Richard Livingstone, cabinet member for community safety, said:
“This is one of the worst cases of irresponsible trading that I have seen. The owners showed a total disregard for the health of their customers - no-one wants to buy their food from a shop littered with dead rats.

Rye Lane (Peckham) has smelt of rotting meat YEARS and customers (predominately from the black community) who frequent those stores on a regular basis, rushing to buy cheap meat and fish in bulk need to wake the hell up. Mark my words, the owners of those stores, their families and friends etc are not consuming that poison. Do your research and take your custom elsewhere.
The other day a friend of my mum’s told her that she went to buy meat in a store on Lewisham High Street, and claims the man serving coughed and then shamelessly spat out the phlegm in to a bucket placed next to him.
Now had I witnessed this slackness I would have informed Lewisham council and then demanded they investigate the store and their food hygiene practices.
Anyway Ash Meat and Fish Centre has apparently now reopened.
All I can do is laugh.
