A kebab shop owner has been ordered to pay nearly £2,000 after a customer was sold a pizza with a BOLT embedded in the crust.

Mehmet Gilgil, 25, owner and food business operator at Flames Kebabs in Romford, London, appeared at Romford Magistrates Court on December 20.

He pleaded guilty to selling food not of the “substance or quality required” after the incident in December 2012.

The inch-long bolt had come from the inside of the oven and fallen into the pizza as it cooked, before being sold to an unsuspecting customer.

Gilgil was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £750 in costs and a £100 victim surcharge.

Romford council’s cabinet member for Public Protection, Councillor Lesley Kelly said: “Selling shoddy products of any kind is not acceptable and is particularly important when preparing food.

“We will always prosecute and seek the highest possible fine to make sure that everyone maintains standards in their kitchens.

“This was a cheap bolt that got someone an expensive fine and that should be a lesson to others.”
