A woman who runs a café in Stevenage town centre has been ordered to pay more than £9,000 after selling out of date food.

Mariana Precup, the food business operator at Nosh in Queensway, was found guilty of selling bacon, sausages, turkey breast and sandwich fillings after the ‘use by’ date, as well as removing or altering the date labels on salmon, sausages and pork pie products.

The 33-year-old of Woolners Way was fined £4,000, ordered to pay £5,000 in court costs and pay a victim surcharge of £200 when she appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court.

Precup had previously pleaded guilty in October 2013 before appealing.
