Dublin restaurant issued with closure order

One closure order and one prohibition order were served on separate food businesses in January, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) reported today.

The orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive for breaches of food safety legislation.

A closure order was served on Earl's Delicatessen (restaurant), School of Architecture, University College Dublin, Richview, Clonskeagh, Dublin 14.

A prohibition order was served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on Sheahans Butchers, Church Street, Caherciveen, Kerry.

Two successful prosecutions were carried out by the HSE during the month of January on Kelleghan Catering Food Stall, Main Street, Tallow, Waterford and Millbridge Meats (butcher), 3A Millbridge Court, Kilmacrennan, Donegal.

FSAI chief executive Dr Pamela Byrne stated that food businesses need to be vigilant at all times in relation to food safety to ensure full compliance with food legislation.

“Food businesses must recognise that the legal onus is on them to make sure that the food they sell or serve is safe to eat,” she said.

“This requires ongoing compliance with food safety and hygiene standards.

“Food businesses should take full advantage of the information and support provided by the inspectorate and the FSAI.”

Closure orders remain listed on the FSAI website for three months from the date of when a premises is adjudged to have corrected its food safety issue, with prohibition orders being listed for a period of one month.
