A woman has pleaded not guilty to selling out-of-date food and removing or altering the ‘use by’ date on items sold at a cafe.
Mariana Precup, the food business operator at Nosh Cafe in Stevenage’s Queensway, appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court last week.
The 32-year-old is charged with selling food – namely bacon, sausages, sun-dried tomatoes, sandwich fillings, turkey breast and felafal filling – after the ‘use by’ date.
She is also charged with removing or altering the ‘use by’ date on food – namely salmon, packs of sausages and pork pies.
She pleaded not guilty to both charges and has been bailed to appear at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on June 23 for a pre-trial review.
The trial is set to start on July 31.
