Issues with mouse droppings found in a supermarket have reportedly been resolved according to a new food hygiene inspection.

The Aldi branch at the O2 Centre in Finchley Road was previously slapped with a 1/5 food hygiene score following a visit by Camden Council inspectors on April 14, 2023, in which droppings were found on shelves next to cakes.

The council's environmental health team said ‘major improvement’ was necessary, as a gnawed bag of flour was also found.

On December 19, 2023, inspectors visited the shop again and issued ‘very good’ ratings across all criteria, giving it a 5/5 rating.

The Ham&High is keeping a monthly record of food hygiene inspections within Camden.
