London, 25 May 2021:
The Libyan Food and Drug Control Centre reported yesterday that an unlicensed ”McDonald’s” restaurant in the Hay Al-Andalus district of Tripoli was closed down for health and safety infringements.
It reported that inspectors of the Food and Drug Control Centre, Tripoli Branch, accompanied by the Media Office and the Municipal Guard, conducted an inspection tour targeting restaurants, bakeries, and pharmacies in the Municipality of Hay Al-Andalus, including the McDonald’s restaurant.
The Food and Drug Control Centre reported that while the McDonald’s general hygiene was good, the inspectors found the presence of expired food items. They also found ‘‘foodstuffs in violation of Standard 53 that do not contain the explanatory data’’.
The report also said some staff were not using head coverings and masks. A warehouse that does not comply with the Specification 564 for the conditions of good storage was also found.
The Food and Drug Control Centre said a report was referred to the Municipal Guard, which took action to close the restaurant.
