Maggots and teeth in served food

Hundreds of  diners reported finding everything from maggots to teeth in meals bought from food outlets.
Among the 3,400 complaints received by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) were reports of chewing gum turning up in sandwich wraps, in scrambled egg from a breakfast buffet and in takeaway rice; maggots in mashed potato, hair in a sandwich; and a tooth in a takeaway dish.
 Pre-packaged food also had some surprise ingredients including rodent droppings in a bag of crisps, larvae in a jar of beetroot, glass in a smoothie, and a wasp in a packet of rashers.
 Unlisted allergens or confusing information about allergens also left a bad taste in the mouths of 103 people — a 42% increase on 2016.

Law will hit Whiskey Tourism


The Government’s Public Health (Alcohol) Bill in its current state will hurt Ireland’s fast-growing whiskey tourism industry, according to the Irish Whiskey Association.
 The proposed Bill significantly restricts advertisements which refer to alcohol branding including where alcohol advertisements can be displayed.  The Bill makes no special provisions or exemptions for whiskey distillery visitor centres, which means advertising of visitor centres which include a whiskey (or beer) brand name will be severely restricted and in some cases prohibited.
