A RECORD 13 food outlets were served with closure orders in July, including four food stalls in Dun Laoghaire and one at the Oxegen festival.

The orders were issued by HSE environmental health officers. The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) said that the same problems were consistently appearing at premises which failed to meet food hygiene standards.

“Dirty premises, unhygienic practices and improper storage of food simply will not be tolerated,” said Prof Alan Reilly, FSAI.

Here’s the full list of premises and stalls ordered to stop serving food:

  • Hadi Indian take-away, Main Street, Ballaghaderreen, Roscommon
  • Cherry Blossom Take Away & Restaurant, Unit 4, Watson & Johnson Centre, Church Road, Greystones, Wicklow
  • Punjab Balti food stall, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
  • A Taste of India food stall, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
  • Food stall occupied by Keziah Mabunde, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
  • Habesha Food Company food stall, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
  • Keenans Butchers and Deli (Part of premises), Lanesboro Road, Roscommon
  • Saagar Restaurant, 16 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2
  • Rong Xing Supermarket, 157 Parnell Street, Dublin 1
  • Patrick Ivory pub (kitchen only), 61 Castle Street, Dalkey, Co. Dublin
  • Liada Bakery Limited, Trading as Merkurius D, Unit 2, Quinnspares, Durrow, Offaly
  • Chinese Fast Food food stall, Main Stage, Arena 2, Oxegen Festival 2010, Punchestown, Naas, Kildare
  • Hanlin Restaurant, 154 Parnell Street, Dublin 1

Outlets are permitted to begin selling and serving food again once inspectors decide they have corrected any issues behind a closure order and are meeting food safety standards.

BURGERS ARE NOT generally listed under ‘healthy eating options’, but meat-eaters in the US may have gone a step too far with their latest creation: the doughnut burger.

The Krisy Kreme Cheeseburger is a burger, cheese, and two doughnuts. Yum.

For those really determined to pack in the calories, chocolate-covered bacon on a stick has been known to accompany the doughnut burger.

The burger has been selling for $5 at the Wisconsin State Fair, and weighs in at 1,000 calories.

Last year, the Wisconsin Department for Health Services implored residents to fight obesity by making more healthy choices, and said that over half of the adults in Wisconsin were either obese or overweight.
