One Prohibition Order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

Dr Pamela Byrne, the FSAI chief executive, said: "Enforcement Orders and most especially Closure Orders and Prohibition Orders are never served for minor food safety breaches. They are served on food businesses only when a serious risk to consumer health has been identified or where there are a number of ongoing breaches of food legislation and that largely tends to relate to a grave hygiene or operational issue. There can be no excuse for putting consumers’ health at risk through negligent practices. Food businesses have a legal onus to make sure that the food they sell or serve is safe to eat.”
