FEHD orders Sham Shui Po fresh provision shop to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a fresh provision shop in Sham Shui Po to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
     The shop, located on the ground floor at 371 Ki Lung Street, Sham Shui Po, was ordered to suspend business from today (February 1) to February 14.
     "In April and October last year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $1,800 was levied by the court and 30 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the 14-day business suspension," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The licensee of the fresh provision shop had a record of two convictions for making unauthorised alterations to matters specified in the approved plan and extending the business area illegally in February 2015 and February last year respectively. A total fine of $1,700 was levied and 15 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to business suspension for seven days at the end of April last year.
     The spokesman reminded the licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR, or their licences could be suspended or cancelled.
     Licensed food premises are required to exhibit a sign, at a conspicuous place near the main entrance, indicating that the premises are licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
