The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has reported that one Closure Order and one Prohibition Order were served on two food businesses in March for breaches of food safety legislation.
A Prohibition Order was served to the Alimentara Transilvania grocery store at the Coolmine Industrial Estate, Blanchardstown.
The Closure Order was served on Millars Restaurant in Ballydangan, Athlone on the 19th of March – it was however, then lifted on the 24th of March.
Dr Bernard Hegarty, Director of Service Contracts of the FSAI commented that vigilance is always required in relation to food safety and that the onus is on food businesses to act responsibly and ensure that the food they serve and sell is safe to eat.
“We’re urging food businesses to make sure that they have a food safety management system in place and that it is consulted and updated on a regular basis to ensure non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation do not occur,” he added.
