FSAI Closed Ten Food Businesses

Bird and rodent droppings and dead flies were found by health inspectors among food businesses across the country which were closed in August. The latest enforcement report from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) showed that 10 businesses were shut down last month for food safety reasons.

Ten enforcement orders were served on businesses in August, including nine closure orders and one prohibition order.

Four of the closure orders broke the FSAI's own rules on food safety. The businesses included Ginzeng in the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre; Bakers and Baristas, also in the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre; The Cashel Curry and Pizza House in Tipperary; and D Grill on Aungier Street in Dublin.

Five businesses were closed  by the FSAI after they broke European Union rules around food. These were Mizzonis Pizza in Navan, Co Meath; Paddy O'Dwyer Quality Meats in Cashel in Tipperary; Dalesann Haulage Limited, operating from Jamestown House in Dublin; McSorley's Centra in Enniscorthy, Co Wexford; and The Bernard Shaw in Glasnevin, Dublin.
