Food Safety Authority Serves Closure Order On Brittas Bay Food Business.

The FSAI report that two Closure Orders were served on food businesses in the month of April.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today reported that two Closure Orders were served on food businesses during the month of April for breaches of food safety legislation, pursuant to the European Union (Official Controls in Relation to Food Legislation) Regulations, 2020. The Enforcement Orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive (HSE) and officers of the FSAI.

Two Closure Orders were served under the European Union (Official Controls in Relation to Food Legislation) Regulations, 2020, including one on Mrs Beltons Farm Produce, Black Ditch, Brittas Bay, Wicklow.

Commenting today, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI, reminded businesses that ensuring correct and proper food safety practices are in place is crucial to protecting the health of consumers:

“The Enforcement Orders in April show that some businesses have committed serious breaches of food safety procedures. Food businesses must have the appropriate registration and/or approval in place before they start to produce and place food on the market. This requirement means that food businesses will be registered and/or approved with the appropriate inspection agency to ensure food safety and protect consumer health. Consumers have a right to safe food and food businesses have a legal requirement to ensure that the food they are processing, serving or selling is safe to eat.”
