Uber has been accused of listing restaurants with a zero hygiene rating on its food service.
The company’s Uber Eats app arranges the delivery of takeaways to homes.
But one in five eateries with a zero rating in London was featured on the company’s website in January, it is claimed.
Comedian Joe Lycett even pranked the company after being ‘shocked’ by the ‘appalling’ hygiene standards of some restaurants listed on takeaway apps.
In an episode of his Channel 4 show, Got Your Back, the presenter sets up a fake restaurant called Le Sauter – French for The Skip – run from a waste container, which he lists on Uber Eats.
A food hygiene expert refuses to give it a rating, but when Lycett, 30, places an order, an Uber Eats driver goes to the skip, picks up the food and delivers it to the presenter.
Uber Eats told the Channel 4 show, which airs at 8.30pm tonight: ‘We are working with the FSA [Food Standards Agency] to review our processes and better signpost food hygiene ratings.’
