A NUMBER of Warrington eateries have had food hygiene ratings updated this month, according to the Food Standards Agency.

The FSA is responsible for rating establishments with scores from one to five based on the preparation, handling, and management of food, as well as the cleanliness of the establishment.

Customers will be familiar with the green hygiene stickers that many eateries display, ranking their establishment out of five stars.
