Closure Order Served On Tipperary Food Business.

Three Closure Orders in total were served on food businesses in May 2021; one in North Co. Tipperary and two in Co. Cork.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today reported that three Closure Orders have been served on food businesses during the month of May for breaches of food safety legislation, pursuant to the FSAI Act, 1998 and the European Union (Official Controls in Relation to Food Legislation) Regulations, 2020.

The Closure Orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive (HSE).

One Closure Order was served under the European Union (Official Controls in Relation to Food Legislation) Regulations, 2020 on:

Kens Oriental Restaurant, (Mr Chong Lin Chan) 1st Floor, Quintins Way, Pearse Street, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary

The other two Closure Orders was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

Factory Canteen Operated Independently by KC Catering, at ABP Food Group, Kilbrogan, Bandon, Co. Cork.

Your Stop NR Farranree (retailer), 6 Popam’s Road, Farranree, Co. Cork.

Some of the reasons outlined for the Closure Orders in May were: rodent activity including dead rodents underneath the chest freezer in the food preparation area and underneath a freezer in the storeroom next to the kitchen; rodent droppings in a container in the food preparation area which stored food contact equipment; evidence of rodent damage to packages of pasta; food premises not maintained in a clean and hygienic condition; plumbing issues resulted in damage to the floor and caused pooling of water on the floor; part of the floor was damaged and not in a fit state to be cleaned effectively; and falsified food safety records were identified along with an absence of a food safety management system increasing the risk of food contamination and posing a risk to food safety.
