first_imgThe Food Safety Authority of Ireland has served Closure Orders on two Donegal food outlets.The establishments – in Letterkenny and Milford – were two of nine orders served with closure orders nationwide last month.The Indian Royale at Market Centre, Main Street Letterkenny and the Brothers Chinese Takeaway at Lower Main Street in Milford were served with the orders.Prof. Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI expressed his disappointment at the continuingly high number of Closure Orders needing to be served on food businesses in Ireland. “In October we witnessed the highest monthly number for Enforcement Orders in ten years. Last month unfortunately, we also found very high levels of non-compliance with food safety legislation, which is just not acceptable,” he said.“Again and again, we encounter cases of food businesses who put consumers’ health at risk by not complying with their legal obligations for food safety and hygiene.“There is absolutely no excuse for negligent practices. 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 and hygiene standards to ensure the food they are producing is safe to eat,” he stated.Prof. Reilly urged food 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. If any food business operator is unsure of what is required of them by law, they can contact the FSAI advice line on 1890 336677 or visit its website or facebook page.Details of the food businesses served with these 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.The FSAI said the Milford closure order was served on Ming Xiang Chen.The closure order in the Indian restaurant was served on Manjit Singh.CHINESE TAKEAWAY AND INDIAN RESTAURANT SERVED CLOSURE ORDERS was last modified: December 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:brothers chinese milfordCHINESE TAKEAWAY AND INDIAN RESTAURANT SERVED CLOSURE ORDERSIndian Royale restaurantlast_img read more
