“The legal onus is on food businesses to act responsibly and ensure that the food they serve and sell is safe to eat” said Prof. Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI.
“There is absolutely no excuse for putting consumers’ health at risk through negligent practices. We are urging businesses to take full advantage of the information and support provided by the inspectorate and the FSAI to ensure that they have the correct food safety management systems in place”.
