Box Village Bakery, which faces Corea Street and is within the boundaries of Miranda, remains closed.

A spokeswoman for the NSW Food Authority said officers visited the business on Monday and issued a prohibition order, preventing the sale of all food.

“The prohibition order remains in effect until a certificate of clearance is issued, which means the NSW Food Authority conducts an inspection of the business and is satisfied the premises are compliant with food safety laws and fit to trade,” shesaid.

“Environmental and food samples have been taken from the premises and are in the process of being tested.

“The NSW Food Authority is undertaking further investigation of the bakery, while this investigation is open and ongoing we are unable to comment further.

“Anyone who suspects they may have food poisoning should seek medical attention.

“If anyone has a food safety concern or complaint they should contact their local council or the NSW Food Authority helpline on 1300 552 406.”
