FSAI Serves Up Eight Enforcement Orders

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has reported seven Closure Orders and one Prohibition Order that were served on food businesses last month for breaches of food safety legislation.

Prof. Alan Reilly, chief executive, FSAI, said: “While most food businesses follow high standards and are compliant with food safety legislation, we continue to encounter cases where consumers’ health is jeopardised through a failure to comply with food safety and hygiene requirements. These breaches are avoidable.”

Among the Closure Orders was the Country Meats butcher in Lifford, Donegal, for non-compliance with food legislation under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010.

One Prohibition Order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on Shellfish da la Mer (fish processing), Castletownbere, Cork.Among the products withdrawn were 14 batches of chowder mix and three batches of cooked and uncooked mussel meat.
