FSAI closes two Wexford restaurants
Two Wexford restaurants were served with closure orders by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland during September, out of seven closed nationally.
Kebab Bites (restaurant), Unit 4, Redmond Square, and the Fusion Café, Monck Street were served with Closure Orders under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010.
The Fusion Café closure covered all food preparation and service activities in and from the kitchen/food preparation and ancillary areas.
The Closure Orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive. The Kebab Bites closure was ordered on September 30.
The Fusion Café closure notice was served on September 22 and lifted on September 28.
Commenting on the number of Enforcement Orders served in September, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said that consumers must be confident at all times that the food they are eating is safe to eat.
'There can be no excuse for putting consumers' health at risk through negligent practices. We are re-emphasising to all food businesses the need for rigorous compliance with food safety and hygiene legislation. This requires putting appropriate food safety management procedures in place and making sure they are adhered to at all times,' she said.
