Eleven food businesses were served with closure orders in August
Grocery stores, butcher shops, restaurants and a bakery were among those ordered to close last month
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) says that eleven closure orders were served on food businesses last month.
Grocery stores, a bakery and butcher shops were among those ordered to close.
Seven closure orders were served under the FSAI Act 1998:
- Spar (grocery), Old Cratloe Road, Caherdavin, Limerick (closed area: delicatessen and food preparation area)
- 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
Separately, four closure orders were served under European Commission regulations. These orders are served when there is "non-compliance with food legislation".
The businesses affected were:
- 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
Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive of the FSAI, said: "Such high numbers of closure orders can tarnish the entire industry, as well as the confidence consumers are entitled to have in the safety of the food they eat."
