UAE: Restaurant shut for repeat food safety violations in Al Ain
Despite several citations to the operators of the facility, no commitment was undertaken to correct the multiple offences.
A popular restaurant in Al Ain city has been shut down for flouting food hygiene rules, authorities have announced.
The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (Adafsa) on Tuesday said that it issued the decision to close the “Blue Land” restaurant facility located in Al Yahar area of Al Ain following repeated violations of health and food safety requirements.
The authority said the restaurant was frequented with the presence of high-risk items without serious attempts by owners to take the necessary corrective action to clean up their act.
The inspectors had issued three warnings for the low level of hygiene in food handling and in preservation areas. Despite repeated citations to the operators of the facility, no commitment was undertaken to correct the multiple violations, which posed risks to consumers’ health due to poor food safety.
The authority confirmed that the administrative closure order will remain in effect until the violations are corrected and the facility fulfils all the necessary food safety requirements to ensure public safety.
Adafsa further pointed out that the detection of the violations and the subsequent closure of the restaurant were during inspections conducted by officials with the aim of strengthening the food safety system in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Officials said they carry out the supervisory role regularly to ensure that all establishments adhere to food safety requirements.
“All food outlets are subject to periodic inspection by Adafsa inspection teams to ensure they comply with food safety requirements,” said officials.
Adafsa has urged the public to report any violations they detect in food outlets or, when in doubt about the contents of the food products, to the Abu Dhabi government toll-free number 800555 so that appropriate legal action can be taken.
