The New Jasmine House restaurant in Kiltimagh was one of seven businesses served with closure orders by the HSE in April.

Other enforcement orders served
One improvement order was served under the FSAI 1998 Act on the Spar grocery store situated on Fitzmaurice Road, Ballygall, Dublin 11. And a probation order under the same act was served on Little Caesar's Palace, restaurant on Balfe Street, Dublin 2.
Professor Alan Reilly, Chief Executive of the FSAI said: “Full compliance with food safety and hygiene standards is essential for all food businesses. There is absolutely no excuse for putting consumers’ health at risk through negligent practices".
Mr Reilly said he would urge businesses to take full advantage of the information and support provided by the inspectorate and the FSAI to ensure that they have the correct food safety management systems in place.
