The closure order on this restaurant was given on the 4th of December and lifted on the 12 December of 2013.
A meat and meat products smoking house (smokinghouse area only) of Aneta Dabrowska at Ednamo, Inniskeen was also given a closure order. This was not lifted.
The FSAI stated that there was a total of 143 Enforcement Orders served for breaches in food safety legislation in 2013 compared with 109 in 2012, an increase of 31% - making last year the highest to date for the number of Enforcement Orders issued.

The FSAI stated that enforcement officers will continue to take a zero tolerance policy to breaches of food safety legislation and will not hold back in taking swift action against any food business that fails to meet its legal obligations in this area.
