Limerick takeaway reopens as closure order is lifted

The closure order which was imposed by HSE inspectors has been lifted

A TAKEAWAY in a Limerick village has reopened for business after a closure order, imposed earlier this week, was lifted.

Orient Express at Main Street, Bruree was ordered to close on Tuesday following an inspection by Environmental Health Officers with the HSE.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has confirmed the closure order, which was served under the provisions of the FSAI ACt 1998, was lifted on Thursday after the matters of concern were resolved by the owner.

It’s not known if Tuesday’s inspection was routine or if a complaint was received in relation to the premises.

The exact reasons for the closure order – the first to be served on any food outlet in Limerick in 2019 –  have not been disclosed.
