Orient Aroma Chinese Restaurant in Westport was issued with a Closure Order from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI ) during the month of November.
Environmental health officers served this order on Chang Fu Gao, Orient Aroma Chinese Restaurant, 37 Bridge Street, Westport on November 16 due to a breach of EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs ) Regulations, 2010. The order was lifted on November 21.
Nationally, the FSAI served six Closure Orders and one Prohibition Order on food businesses during the month of November for breaches in food safety legislation, pursuant to the FSAI Act, 1998 and the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs ) Regulations, 2010.
According to Prof Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, with the busy Christmas period under way, food businesses must be particularly vigilant to the hygiene and food standards they are adopting – no matter how busy a premises is, food safety standards must not be permitted to slip to levels that jeopardise consumer health.
