Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said: “It is disappointing to see such a high number of Enforcement Orders for a second month running. Food businesses must recognise that they are legally bound to ensure the food they serve is safe to eat.”
“We are now into our third week of exceptional weather and high temperatures. Every effort must be made to ensure high standards of hygiene and pest control remain in place and that foods are stored at appropriate temperatures.”
“We would also urge food businesses to check their fridges are not impacted by the hot weather and to monitor temperatures frequently during each day.”
“Every food business must ensure that they have a robust food safety management system in place to ensure non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation do not occur”, Dr. Byrne concluded.
