FEHD orders Sham Shui Po siu mei and lo mei shop to suspend business for 30 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a siu mei and lo mei shop in Sham Shui Po to suspend business for 30 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by storing open food improperly on the premises.
     The premises, located on the ground floor (front portion) at 1A Wing Lung Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, was ordered to suspend business from today (September 28) to October 27.
     "Between February last year and January this year, six convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the licensee of the shop. A total fine of $8,400 was levied by the court and 60 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the cancellation of the licence. The licensee of the shop lodged an appeal to the Licensing Appeals Board, which decided to suspend the license for 30 days instead," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The spokesman reminded 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 have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
