A Teddy's Ice Cream shop in Dublin was ordered to close its storage area last month after rodent droppings were found there.

The business on Dun Laoghaire Harbour's East Pier battery was one of five to be sanctioned by the Food Safety Authority (FSAI) in July.

It was ordered to close the food and packaging storage unit at the side of its premises after rodent droppings were found there on July 14th.

The FSAI said packaging and foodstuffs were left exposed to contamination. It was also found that the storage area was very poorly pest proofed.

Food Safety Inspectors concluded the shop was a grave and immediate danger to public health, and that its food and packaging storage unit should be closed.

Rats were also an issue at the AIM Cash & Carry in Clondalkin.

Part of the premises was ordered to be closed after an open chocolate bar was found under shelving in the rear store and droppings spotted beside the partially eaten product.
