Food inspectors issue closure notices to three sushi restaurants operating from the bedroom of a Dublin home

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has ordered the closure of five food businesses in October.

The list includes three Dublin sushi restaurants operating from the same bedroom in the same house, which have been ordered to close several breaches:

  • Koi Sushi (Takeaway), 1 Shanwarna Road, Santry, Dublin9
  • Nagoya Sushi (Takeaway), 1 Shanwarna Road, Santry, Dublin9
  • Kyoto Sushi (Takeaway), 1 Shanwarna Road, Santry, Dublin9

FSAI inspectors found no evidence that the sushi, which uses raw fish and rice, was “prepared in a safe way.”

The inspector said there was no evidence that officers had been trained or supervised in food safety.

The FSAI Chief Executive, Dr. A.S. Pamela Byrne expressed concern.

“It is absolutely unacceptable to run a food business that is not registered and therefore not overseen, which poses a serious risk to the health of consumers,” she said.

“In these cases, unregistered businesses were producing sushi without hygiene or temperature restrictions. Sushi is a very high-risk product because it contains raw fish, which must be refrigerated to reduce the growth of harmful bacteria.

“It may also contain boiled rice, which is a ready-to-eat product. In these cases, the lack of a food safety management system, cold chain monitoring, and evidence to detect raw ingredients pose a serious and immediate risk to consumer health.

Orders are pending.

“Some lollipops were found to have ‘bare marks’ on the product and the packaging was torn (according to the rat attack). Chewed plastic wrapping material was also observed in this box. ”
