The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today released the findings of an audit that shows an unacceptable level of non-compliance by food businesses when it comes to providing consumers with accurate written information on 14 specified allergens in non-prepacked food (FOOD ALLERGEN LABELING). A representative sample of 50 food service businesses* including cafés, hotels, public houses, restaurants and takeaways were audited to determine if correct written allergen information was being provided to consumers. All food businesses are legally obliged to provide consumers with accurate written information in relation to 14 allergens whether the food is prepacked or non-prepacked. Three in every 100 people in Ireland have a food allergy and they require accurate information about the food they purchase in order to avoid serious and sometimes fatal health consequences.
To stress the gravity of the audit findings and further raise awareness of the legal requirement, the FSAI announced that a national information campaign will roll out today for eight weeks. The FSAI’s new information campaign will run across, print, online and broadcast media with strong messages to highlight the potential consequences that missing or inaccurate allergen information can have on an individual’s health.
