Hi everyone. I work for a local authority Trading Standards department. We will be sitting down in the next couple of weeks and figuring out where to focus our attention in 2017. I thought it might be useful to get some public input.
I'm part of the Food Standards (note: this does not include hygiene as that's dealt with by Environmental Health) and Product Safety teams, so I'm looking for those types of issues.
By way of example- we'v recently looked at issues like illicit alcohol, meat substitution at takeaways, allergen information, hoverboards, part worn tyres, etc.
Are there any particular issues you would like to see addressed?
