A FOOD company operating in the Clones area is one of 12 businesses upon which enforcement orders were served by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) during the month of August.

In a statement released yesterday (Wednesday 9th), the FSAI confirmed that a Prohibition Order has been served on Kamaceuticals Ltd, which is described as a fruit and vegetable processor and based at Burdautien, Clones.

A second Prohibition Order was served on a takeaway in Cabra, Dublin, while ten Closure Orders were served on other food enterprises around the country.

A Closure Order directs the immediate closure of all or part of a food premises, or all or some of its activities, if it is deemed that there is likely to be a grave and immediate danger to public health at or in the premises.

A Prohibition Order, such as that served on Kamaceuticals Ltd, prohibits the sale or products, either temporarily or permanently, where it is deemed that the handling, storing or processing of such products is likely to bring about a serious risk to public health.

The product withdrawn in the case of Kamaceuticals Ltd, Clones is listed by the FSAI as “frozen hemp product in walk-in freezer”.
