Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) has ordered the closure of Western Shell Restaurant and Cafeteria (CN-1472943) in Madinat Zayed in the Western Region for repeated violation of food safety rules.
Mohamed Jalal Al Rayssi, Director of Communication and Community Service at ADFCA, said that the decision to close down the restaurant was taken following repeated warnings and punitive measures over a period of eight months. "The restaurant was given the first warning in July last year as it was flouting several food safety and hygienic norms, posing a clear threat to the health of the customers," he explained.
Al Rayssi said that the inspectors had visited the restaurant again in August, September and several times thereafter, only to find the violations continue unchanged. In view of the refusal of the restaurant owners to take corrective measures in spite of repeated warnings and violation charges, ADFCA decided to order the closure of the restaurant," he added.
