In June, companies were served three shutdown orders – including one that found live and dead cockroaches in a Dublin diner.

The Irish Food Safety Authority today released its latest report detailing that in June there were three shutdown orders issued to food businesses for violations of food safety legislation under the 1998 FSAI Act and the European Union (Official Controls on Food Legislation) Regulations, 2020.

The closure orders were issued by the environmental health officers of the Health Service Executive (HSE).

A closure order has been served in accordance with the regulations of the European Union (Official controls in relation to food legislation) of 2020:

Golden Asian Street Food and Gala Deli at Gala Shanagolden, Main Street, Shanagolden, Limerick

Some reasons for the closure order were: Bodies of dead insects were found on the refrigerated display case in the Gala Retail Shop and live flies were observed flying from an open garbage can to an open container of cooked rice under the sink for raw meat and packaged sandwiches labeled use to 22.05.21 in Gala Deli Fridge were offered for sale marked use from 31.05.21 and 01.06.21.

The closure order was lifted four days after it was enforced on June 4th.
