Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) has ordered closure of a restaurant in the capital city today for not meeting with ADFCA food safety standards and requirements.
It was the Al Alamin Restaurant & Refreshments, which was operating its business in Hamdan Bin Mohammed Street that faced the stringent action from ADFCA for violations to the Food Law No. 2 of 2008.
In this regard, Eng. Thamer Al Qasimi, Acting Director of Communication & Community Service Division of ADFCA said:- "During inspections our officials noticed a number of violations in the facility pertaining to health and safety. They found some kind of food had been cooked inside the staff accommodation under unsafe environment which is a clear violation of ADFCA rules and regulation"
The continuous inspections and the legal action followed it reflect Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority's commitment towards its mission to guarantee that only safe and healthy food is sold within the geographical area of Abu Dhabi emirate.
Eng. Thamer said the facility will remain barred from operation until the corrective actions set by ADFCA are fully implemented from the owner's side.
He said, ADFCA has boosted up its inspection drives recently on all kind of registered eateries in order to ensure a safe summer and fasting season.
He urged all businesses to strictly abide by ADFCA's rules and regulations with regards to the quality and safety of food products in order to maintain the high food safety Abu Dhabi enjoys. He also urged public to notify ADFCA if anything found to be harming the health and safety of consumers by contacting Abu Dhabi Government Contact Center at 800555.
