A take away in Donegal was issued with a closure order last month as it posed an immediate danger to public health, according to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.

In total, seven take away's, pubs, and restaurants throughout the country were found to be in breach of food safety laws in April.

Sewage and waste was seen overflowing from a drain close to the bins outside Spicy Hut on Main Street, Carrigart, Donegal.

The Food Safety Authority said this risked a transfer of faecal matter to the kitchen.

Dr Bernard Hegarty of the Food Safety Authority outlines the risk this poses:

"Faecal matter could be transferred on the feet of the workers coming to and from the rear of the premises into the premises".

Here is the full list of enforcment orders issued last month:

One Closure Order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

  • Spicy Hut (Take Away), Main Street, Carrigart, Donegal

Five Closure Orders were served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

  • Freestyle Asian Restaurant, 23-24 North Main Street, Cork
  • Ceann Sibéal Hotel (Closed area: kitchen, outside vegetable preparation area), Ballyferriter, Tralee, Kerry
  • Pangan Taste of Asian (Restaurant/Café), Unit 1, Block B, River Village, Monksland, Athlone, Roscommon
  • Dragon Chinese take away, Main Street, Dunshaughlin, Meath
  • Paud O’Neills (Pub) (Closed area: music bar venue located in the back yard of the premises), Langford Street, Killorglin, Kerry
