Craig Hassall and Robert Stevenson appear in food allergen case

On the 27th of July 2020 The Honourable Recorder of York His Honour Judge Morris awarded £2,000 compensation to a Woodthorpe schoolgirl.

Maizy Harman was in the reception class at the York primary school when she suffered an anaphylactic reaction. The reaction came as a result of having been given a pudding that contained eggs to which she is allergic.

She was rushed to hospital for treatment and discharged later the same day following treatment.

Craig Hassall was instructed to prosecute the matter by York City Council and Robert Stevenson appeared on behalf of the defence instructed by North Yorkshire Council.

The defendant was charged with Contravention of EU Food Safety Regulations, contrary to Regulation 19(1) and Schedule 2 to the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013.
