“An Unacceptable Number”


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.

They include:

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.


The 14 closure orders were served on:

NKD Pizza (Take Away), 9 Orwell Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6

The Whole Hoggs (Small Meat Manufacturing Plant), Rathmaiden, Slane, Meath

Euro Corner (Retailer), (Closed area: all of the business except [from 10 October 2019] the grocery in the front of the ground floor, for sales of pre-packed ambient foods only) 13 Broad Street, Waterford City, Waterford

Dr Pamela Byrne, CEO of FSAI, said: “Seventeen Enforcement Orders in one month is the highest in a month to date this year and this is an unacceptable number.”

    Perhaps FSAI can represent the consumer’s interest with Irish Water also.
    A capital city with Tesco as the defacto water supply!

      The inclusion of “Celtic Pure (Packaged Water)” is doubly ironic in terms of business name…and timing.

          OK, ,first verse, (then the pub calls):

          At a rotisserie down on Camden
          I watched with gay abandon
          as the nighthawks mooched around, then shuffled in.
          And I wondered in my heart
          if gravy praised by Dr. Fart
          would soon be dribbling down those stubbled chins

    I once had a terrible meal delivered from this place and wrote a review on yelp saying that it was below par. The owner then took it upon himself to call to my house and scream at me. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Camden Rotiss, BYEEEEEEEEEEEE

    wont hear a bad word about camden rotisserie. deadly food. been eating there since it opened years ago. excellent place really well ran. no wonder theyre fighting it, probably something v small. that whole block is ear marked to be bulldozed and made into offices and hotels, theyre probably tryna run out the businesses and take over.
