Limerick takeaway ordered to close following HSE inspection

The closure order was served following a HSE inspection

A TAKEAWAY in a Limerick village has been ordered to close following an inspection by the Health Service Executive.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has confirmed a closure order was served on the proprietor of Orient Express at Main Street, Bruree following an inspection earlier this week.

While the order was served under the provisions of the FSAI ACt 1998, the exact reasons for the closure have not been outlined and no indication has been given as to when it will be lifted.

It’s not known if Tuesday’s inspection was routine or if Environmental Health Officers visited the takeaway having received a complaint relating to the premises.

The closure order is the first to be served on any food outlet in Limerick in 2019.
