Nine enforcement orders served in September

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today said that nine enforcement orders were served on food businesses during September for breaches of food safety legislation.

Closure orders were served on: Mullallys grocery (storage areas only), Tipperary; Wax/Spy public house, Dublin; Ely Winebar and Café (part of basement), Dublin; Fortune Star House take-away, Waterford; Five Alley Bar and Restaurant (food preparation and storage areas, not bar or bar store), Tipperary; China Garden take-away, Dublin.

Prohibition Orders were served on: Wax/Spy public house and Ely Winebar and Café, both Dublin.

Dr John O’Brien, chief executive, FSAI, expressed concern at the high number of enforcement orders that had to be issued.

"The number of orders issued in September represents the highest number issued in one month so far this year.

"We continue to stress to food businesses that it is their responsibility to adhere to best practice set down in law or there will be consequences such as enforcement orders.

"Our main priority is the safety of the consumer in relation to food, and the food they purchase must be produced to the highest standards attainable."
