A follow-up hygiene inspection at Manchester United, after the club was given the lowest possible rating following a bout of food poisoning, has uncovered a host of further issues.

Mold was found growing in a dishwasher and grease was seen “dripping down a wall”, while “rotten metal shelving” was discovered in a warehouse when officials revisited Old Trafford.

In December, Mail Sport revealed that United had received a one-star rating after guests were served raw chicken at a corporate event. Inspectors said the club needed a “major upgrade” and for those affected to attend a safety, health and environment show, which was held at the venue in November.

They were called in after attendees made complaints, and the culprit is believed to have been a batch of undercooked chicken thighs. United said the incident was “isolated” and that everyone at the club was determined to regain our 5-star status “as quickly as possible.”

Another visit from inspectors was arranged and Mail Sport can reveal that while it found the club had “done a lot of work” since the poisoning incident, it also failed to return United to the top 5-star rating, instead awarding them 4 stars.

In fact, the follow-up inspection found a variety of additional and dirty problems. Mold growth and debris were identified in a dishwasher while a gas pipe was in a “greasy state.” Elsewhere, filters on the extraction cover were “dusty”, while an emergency button on a refrigerator was “dirty”.

Grease was discovered “dripping down a wall” in a dry storage area at the Red Café, and United ordered a deep clean, which would eliminate any fire risk.

A gas pipe to a grill at the same location was found not to be properly connected to the fixed pipe, while several gas appliances did not have safety chains attached.

Metal shelving in a warehouse was also found to be “starting to rot.”

United believes it is rare for a property to go from 1 to 5 stars and believes they will improve upon the next inspection. They point out that they serve more than 250,000 people throughout each season and successfully organize 300 external events each year, with 8,000 people served at each game in 28 kitchens.
