A Swindon supermarket which was given a zero rating for its food hygiene has completed a turnaround.

The Asda at the Orbital Shopping Park was given a zero-rated food hygiene score in November last year following an inspection. 

But as soon as the score was released, an Asda spokesperson said that the chain had implemented the recommended actions 'immediately' and it had applied for re-inspection. 

It was then re-inspected and boosted up to a three-out-of-five rating in December after a swift re-inspection. 

And following another inspection in April, it has now been given a full five-star score by Swindon Borough Council's food hygiene inspectors. 

Asda was deemed to require urgent improvement in all three of the categories inspectors look for in November last year, but it is now considered 'good' in all areas. 

These include hygienic food handling, management of food safety, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building.

Specific details of the North Swindon store's initial failings from the first inspection are not known, as the council refused to provide the full report.

The council does not recommend its residents buy food from any business with a rating below three.

There are four currently zero-rated establishments in Swindon listed on the Food Standards Agency at the moment - The Patriot's Arms, Fantasy Chicken, Hongxin Buffet and India Bazaar Supermarket.
