Commenting on the Closure Orders, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said:

“While the vast majority of food businesses are compliant with food safety and hygiene requirements, unfortunately food inspectors continue to encounter cases where consumers’ health is put at possible risk through negligent practices. There are absolutely no excuses for these breaches of food law."
