Four Irish food businesses ordered to close due to health and safety violations

download (1)During the month of November, four closure orders and five prohibition orders were served to Irish food businesses due to violations in health and safety.  The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has ruled that nine Irish establishments were guilty of violating or breaching food safety legislation and regulations.

The following establishments were issued closure notices under the FSAI Act, 1998 and the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010.

  • Legends (take away), 63 Georges Street Upper, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
  • Pizza House (take away), Kilmacow, Kilkenny
  • Brennans Pork Shop (butcher), 7&8 Dublin Street, Carlow
  • Ming Court Restaurant, Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin 15

Five other establishments were issued Prohibition Orders:

  • O’Connor Butchers, The Square, Dromcollogher, Limerick
  • Crusts (manufacturer/packer), Unit 41, Millennium Trade Park, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15
  • Bombay Bazaar (supermarket), Unit 25 Butterly Business Park, Kilmore Road, Artane, Dublin 5
  • Forte Restaurant and Take Away, Castle Street, Roscommon
  • Andarl Farm (cold store), Brickens, Claremorris, Mayo

A prosecution was also carried out by the HSE on Kungfu Buffet (restaurant), Unit 2, Phibsborough Shopping Centre, Phibsborough Road, Phibsborough, Dublin 7.


Chief executive of the FSAI, Pamela Byrne said: “Food safety must be paramount. There can be zero tolerance for negligent practices that potentially put consumers’ health at risk. It is particularly important in the lead up to the busy Christmas period that food businesses ensure they can cope safely with the increased volumes of food they may supply”.
