Come on, tell us the score for Eat Safe

THE Eat Safe program has continued to attract letters to the editor and SMSs since we ran a story last week about the low number of eateries that passed the initial inspection.

People believe they have a right to know which were the poor performing food businesses and I agree.

In today's story Councillor Wayne Honor said that the consumers would be the regulators and could ask what rating a premises received.

Does that mean they will reveal the rating?

Not necessarily.

The NewsMail phoned a number of eateries to inquire what their ratings were and got a mixed response.

Some staff had no idea what the rating was, while some premises had their unofficial rating and didn't want to reveal that.

Cr Honor is hopeful that Bundaberg will follow in the footsteps of the Brisbane City Council and see a jump in the number of eateries receiving three stars or more.

While I'd like nothing better than to see that too, I don't think the eateries should have the choice to opt in or out.

It should be all or nothing.
