These 11 food businesses were closed last month

The closures were carried out in Dublin, Limerick, Clare, Westmeath, Waterford, Carlow and Cork.

ELEVEN CLOSURE ORDERS were served on food businesses last month.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) served the orders for breaches of food safety legislation.

The closures, which were issued by environmental health officers in the HSE, were carried out in Dublin, Limerick, Clare, Westmeath, Waterford, Carlow and Cork.

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

  • Spar (grocery) (closed area: delicatessen and food preparation area), Old Cratloe Road, Caherdavin, Limerick
  • Casa De Burritos (restaurant), Unit C, Woodquay, Ennis, Clare
  • Trendz Longford (food stall), Lough Lene, Collinstown, Westmeath
  • Ocean Chinese Takeaway, 74 Upper Yellow Road, Waterford
  • Camden Halal (butcher), 24 Camden Street Lower, Dublin 2
  • Sakura Sushi (restaurant),157 Kimmage Road Lower, Dublin 6W
  • Spice Bazaar (grocery), Unit 2, Castle Shopping Centre, Swords, County Dublin

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

  • Javs Take Away, 16 South Main Street, Youghal, Cork
  • Namaste India (take away), 88 North King Street, Dublin 7
  • Loughbeg Farm Foods Limited (bakery), Boleagh Food Unit, Boleagh, Ballydehob, Cork
  • Brennan’s Butchers, 8 Dublin Street, Carlow

Commenting on the high level of Closure Orders served in August, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI warns that the legal onus is on food businesses to ensure that the food they serve and sell is safe to eat at all times.

The majority of food businesses follow high standards and are compliant with food safety legislation. However, inspectors continue to encounter cases where consumers’ health is jeopardised through a failure to comply with food safety and hygiene requirements.

“All food businesses must have a food safety management system in place that is consulted and updated on a regular basis, in order to avoid non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation.
