The Environmental Health Association of Ireland (EHAI) has launched :
Butchers’ Booklet - Guidance on Food Safety and Labelling Requirements relating to Butchers’ Counters.
This FREE Booklet which has been compiled by members of the Environmental Health Association of Ireland aims to address some important food safety and labelling issues that apply to butcher shops. Due to the nature of their operations, butcher shops present unique hazards and it is important that butchers are aware of their obligations under Food Safety & Labelling Regulations.
Issues which are discussed in detail in the booklet include
- cross contamination
- specified risk material (SRM)
- animal by-products
- beef labelling
- fish labelling
This booklet is a great reference point for butchers within the retail sector and which will assist then in meeting their legal requirement to manage food safely.
Through its members the EHAI are actively involved in promoting an awareness of current and emerging environmental health issues. The production of the this FREE Booklet is an example of how the EHAI is continually trying to promote, educate, advise and heighten the awareness of Environmental Health issues among the public and the profession.
