Manchester United, one of England's elite football clubs and considered one of the best in the world, is currently not in a favourable situation, both sportingly and institutionally. As reported by The Athletic, the UK's Food Standards Agency (FSA) has detected a problem with the Manchester club's food. At a non-football event at Old Trafford Stadium, according to The Athletic, the cooks at the "Theatre of Dreams" reportedly served raw chicken.


That error led to them receiving a negative rating of one out of five and the FSA labelled the food served at the Reds' ground as "unhealthy". For its part, United issued a statement saying the club "has one of the largest and most experienced food and beverage operations in world sport, with over 250,000 people dining in the stadium restaurants and over 300 successful external events held each year".

"Every match day, more than 8,000 people enjoy the catering, served in 28 kitchens spread throughout the stadium, and the club is proud of the high standards and five-star food hygiene record we have been awarded over the last eight years," the English club said. "This was an isolated incident and the point of failure has been identified and addressed. Everyone at the club is determined to regain our five-star food hygiene status.

First problem

"After investigation, it was confirmed that a small portion of raw meat was served at a non-match day event. This is an isolated case and the error was dealt with immediately. Manchester United takes these incidents very seriously and wants to make amends to our valued fans and customers who maintain high culinary standards. The Manchester club now hopes that it will all remain an uncomfortable anecdote, just like the Red Devils' serious sporting situation, who lost 2-0 to West Ham on Saturday.
