A KITCHEN IN The Arlington Hotel Temple Bar has been hit with a closure order by the Food Safety Authority.

The order was served on just one basement kitchen in the 63-room hotel.

The FSAI imposed ten other closure orders in November.

One of these was on a manufacturing plant for Pure Green Juices.

This brand was visible in a number of retailers across Dublin in the past year.

“The legal onus is on all food businesses to ensure that the food they serve is safe to eat,” chief executive Professor Alan Reilly said.

It is particularly important in the lead up to the busy Christmas period that food businesses ensure they can cope safely with the increased volumes of food they may supply.

Closure orders included:

  • Curry Hut (restaurant), 71 O’Connell Street, Dungarvan, Waterford
  • Mr Kebab (take away) (rear potato preparation area), Main Street, Kilfinane, Limerick
  • The Arlington Hotel (basement kitchen only), 16/18 Lord Edward Street, Dublin 2
