Food Safety Authority issued 10 closure orders last month

The Food Safety Authority has said 10 closure orders were issued last month.

Five premises in Dublin were closed along with two in Mayo, one in Kerry, one in Tipperary and one in Co Meath.

Among them were restaurants, take-aways, the kitchen of a B&B and a bakery.

The FSAI has said it is disappointed at the lack of vigilance by some business owners, who are potentially putting customer health at risk.

Four closure orders were served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

Canton House (restaurant), 2 Bath Street, Dublin 4

Sweet Nosh (restaurant), Unit 6, Chatham Street, Dublin 2

Tikka Balti (take away), 404 South Circular Road, Dublin 8

Brandon Bay Lodge/B&B (closed area: the kitchen), Killshanig, Maharees, Castlegregory, Kerry

Six closure orders were served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

Jade Dragon (restaurant), North Mall, Westport, Mayo

Gleeson's Bakery, Lewis Lane, Connolly Street, Nenagh, Tipperary

Nan's (take away), 3 Applewood Village, Swords, Co Dublin

Jade Palace (restaurant), 1st Floor of Orchard Bar, Applewood Village, Swords, Co Dublin

Caspian's (restaurant), Main Street, Kiltimagh, Mayo

Rishab's Tandoori House (restaurant), Main Street, Dunshaughlin, Meath

One prohibition order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

One prohibition order was served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

Mad Cow Milkshakes Burgers & Kebabs (take away), 1 Annamoe Road, Cabra, Dublin 7

FSAI chief executive Dr Pamela Byrne said that she was disappointed by the lack of vigilance by some owners in ensuring their food businesses were fully compliant with food safety legislation.

"We continue to find unacceptable levels of non-compliance with food safety legislation," she said.

"There are still some food business operators who are potentially putting their customers’ health at risk by not complying with their legal obligations for food safety and hygiene.

"There is absolutely no excuse for these negligent practices.

"Food businesses must recognise that the legal onus is on them to make sure that the food they serve is safe to eat. This requires ongoing compliance with food safety and hygiene standards."
