FEHD cancels licence of fresh provision shop in Shau Kei Wan
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene cancelled the licence of a fresh provision shop in Shau Kei Wan today (November 21) as the licensee breached a licensing condition by selling chilled poultry as fresh poultry. The shop concerned has had to cease operation with immediate effect.

     The fresh provision shop is located on the ground floor at 23 Kam Wa Street, Shau Kei Wan.

     A spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said, "The FEHD will not tolerate the sale of chilled or frozen poultry as fresh poultry in fresh provision shops. Suspected cases will be promptly investigated with enforcement actions taken where appropriate. Those breaching the relevant licensing condition are liable to immediate cancellation of the licence concerned."

     People should call the FEHD's hotline at 2868 0000 to report such irregularities, or when they have doubts about meat and poultry being sold at retail outlets.

     Licensed food premises are required to exhibit a sign, at a conspicuous place near the main entrance, indicating that the premises have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
