A RESTAURANT in Limerick city centre has re-opened after it was ordered to close by health inspectors.
Adana Char Grill at Cornmarket Row in the city was one of nine premises across the country which were ordered to close during January.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) says the closure order was served on the operators of the restaurant by HSE inspectors on January 27 and that it was later lifted on February 3.
The reasons for the closure order, under EC regulations order governing the control of foodstuffs, have not been disclosed.
Professor Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, says vigilance is always required in relation to food safety and that standards must not be allowed to slip.
“It is not acceptable for any food business to potentially put their customers’ health at risk,” he said.
“Every food business should be striving to meet the high food safety and hygiene standards that the majority of food businesses achieve on a daily basis,” he added.
