Target apologises for faecal fingering

Home Broadcasting and Media Target apologises for faecal fingering

Last Tuesday’s episode of Target (June 16) screened an undercover camera segment looking into hygiene standards at a number of Auckland cafes.

Food was purchased at the cafes, and the samples sent away for laboratory testing.

One of those samples came back with a high reading of faecal coliform. In the programme, this reading was attributed to Café Cezanne in Ponsonby Road.

Further investigation by the producers revealed an error in the way the samples were coded by a Top Shelf employee. This means Top Shelf is unable to confirm which café produced the high faecal coliform count.

Top Shelf has acknowledged this is completely unacceptable and arose due to human error from a now former employee. Top Shelf has unreservedly apologised for this mistake, and noted that Café Cezanne was recently awarded an A food grading by the Auckland City Council.
