Camden Rotisserie on Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2 which is appealing a closure order
The Food Safety Authority has announced that, during October, it served 14 closure orders on food businesses for breaches of food safety legislation, one improvement order and two prohibition orders.
On its website, the FSAI explained some of the general reasons for the orders.
Rodent paw marks on dusty shelves; gnaw marks on coffee bean bags; two dead rats found in the dry goods storeroom; rusted and dirty interior of a mincing machine; an absence of staff food hygiene training records for all food handlers; and one business did not have the facilities to sell and supply fresh fish and crustaceans as there was no dedicated area for handling the fresh fish and crustaceans.
The reasons also included a food worker handling raw frozen burger meat and not changing gloves when dressing cooked burgers; and when management were asked about two complaints regarding maggots in fish they could provide no information with regard to traceability of the product or to where the remainder of implicated fish had been disposed of.
