Closure order issued against two Galway food businesses in March

Two Galway food businesses were issued with a closure order by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland last month.

Health inspectors with the HSE issued a closure order to Gourmet Tart Company and a kitchen connected to Xi”an Street Food

Gouermet Tart Company of the Ballybane Industrial Estate was issued with a closure order on March 22, which was lifted two days later on March 24.

The order was issued due to “a lack of adequate cleaning and disinfection” which could cause the cross contamination of food.

The inspector noted that several containers for mixing foodstuffs had not been cleaned or disinfected, and some had a “foul odour” coming from them.

It was also noted that the premises wasn’t adequately pest-proofed, with multiple gaps where pest could gain entry.

The business was also ordered to recall all food manufactured on March 21 and 22 until it was deemed safe for human consumption or destroyed.

A second closure order was also issued against a satellite kitchen of Xi”an Street Food on March 1 and lifted four days later on March 5.

According to the FSAI inspector the “layout, design and size of the food preparation area was inadequate and gave rise to an unacceptable risk to food safety.”

The closure order also said that the premises was not pest proof and a large amount of food waste, and full rubbish bags accumulating upstairs from the food preparation area.

The premises ordered to close is on 8 Quay Street and is not connected to the premises on 9 Quay Street.
