The premises was, according to the report, 'filthy' with dirty cardboard used as a food contact surface for cooked rice and on the flooring throughout.

A closure order has been issued for a restaurant in Roscommon following a number of health and safety breaches. An inspection was carried out on Seasons Chinese Bridge Street in Strokestown in October. The order was issued following an inspection by a HSE officer. According to the report, 11 specific breaches of food safety legislation were observed inside the premises. Among the issues noted were a lack of hand washing by staff as well as a lack of soap and paper towels.

The inspector observed various containers of raw chicken being stored at room temperature and a chopping board being stored on top of a tea towel contaminated with raw chicken. The premises was, according to the report, 'filthy' with dirty cardboard used as a food contact surface for cooked rice and on the flooring throughout. Cooked noodles were also being left to cool next to raw chicken, posing an increased risk of cross-contamination, while food stored in the cold-room was not labelled or dated. The HSE officer served the owner of the restaurant with a closure order in October, with that restriction lifted earlier this month.
