-Wok Inn Chinese Take Away, Lower Main Street, Ferns, Wexford
-Lotus (restaurant) (Closed Area: applies to all areas of the food business with the exception of the low risk retail area i.e. off licence and shop), 70 South Main Street, Wexford


“While the vast majority of food businesses are compliant with food safety and hygiene requirements, unfortunately food inspectors continue to encounter cases where consumers’ health is put at possible risk through negligent practices," said Dr Pamela Byrne, FSAI chief executive.

“We’re urging all food businesses to ensure that they have a food safety management system in place and that it is consulted and updated on a regular basis to avoid non-compliance issues." Businesses are urged to go on to FSAI's website if they are unsure of their compliance issues.
