Eight Enforcement Orders served on food businesses in Ireland this August

Seven closure orders and one prohibition order were served on food businesses during August in Ireland, reports the FSAI.

Businesses were served orders for breaches of food safety legislation and were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive.

One Closure Order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

  • Akash Restaurant, 7 George’s Avenue, Blackrock, Co. Dublin

Six Closure Orders were served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

  • Juno’s Café Deli (restaurant), 26 Parkgate Street, Dublin 8
  • T.J. O’Toole (public house) (Closed activities: supply of food from the kitchen), Tourmakeady, Mayo
  • Tasty Bite (restaurant), 1A Main Street, Bantry, Cork
  • Abbey Tavern (public house), The Square, Tuam, Galway
  • Fuchsia House & Gables Bar (restaurant), Dundalk Road, Ardee, Louth

One Prohibition Order was served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

  • Supervalu (supermarket), College View, Main Street, Ballymun, Dublin 11.

“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”.

  1. Hello everyone!

    We’d like to clarify that our closure order was due a list of minor repairs that have since been carried out, and the order was lifted less than 24 hours later.

    Our main priority has always been to produce a quality product in a clean & safe environment for the customers who have supported us over the last 5 years and it is imperative to us that people are aware of the circumstances in which these recent events took place.

    We really appreciate the understanding and support during the last few days and are excited to move forward in the cafe that we all love!

    – the Juno’s team
