FSA urges restaurants to comply with allergen info regulations


Restaurants and food outlets in Donegal are being reminded that it is now a legal requirement to give information about the presence of potantial allergens in food.

Since the beginning of the year, there's been a legal requirement on restaurants to provide information on the presence of ingredients such as nuts, gluten, milk, eggs and shellfish.

In total, the Food Safety Authority has identified 14 different items people should be advised about.

Information Executive Helen Crowley says the authority is working to ensure compliance, and while the FSA would prefer not to take a heavy handed approach, they are disappointed with the slow rate of compliance since the regulations were introduced...........
