“There can be no excuse for putting consumers’ health at risk through negligent practices. The legal onus is on all food businesses to ensure that the food they serve is safe to eat. It is of particular importance over the coming weeks that food businesses properly prepare for the lead up to Christmas and ensure that they can cope safely with the increased volumes of food they may supply.” said Professor Alan Reilly of the FSAI.
