Commenting on the
Enforcement Orders served in June, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said
that all food businesses must operate stringent food safety procedures in order
to protect consumers’ health.
“The vast majority of food businesses
in Ireland must be commended for adhering to the highest of food safety
standards, but there continues to be a number of food businesses lagging behind.
These food businesses served with the Enforcement Orders reflect badly on the
entire food industry and can discourage consumer confidence. Food businesses
must recognise that the legal onus is on them to make sure that the food they
serve is safe to eat. This requires ongoing compliance with food safety
legislation and hygiene standards. There is absolutely no excuse for careless
practices”, said Dr Byrne.
Details of the food
businesses served with Enforcement Orders are published on the FSAI’s website.
Closure Orders and Improvement Orders will remain listed on the website for a
period of three months from the date of when a premises is adjudged to have
corrected its food safety issue, with Prohibition Orders being listed for a
period of one month.
