FEHD orders Wong Tai Sin food factory to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a food factory in Wong Tai Sin to suspend business for 14 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
     The premises, located at Shop 3A on the ground floor of Man Po Building at 28 Yuk Wah Crescent, Tsz Wan Shan, Wong Tai Sin, was ordered to suspend business from today (August 11) to August 24.
     "In January and May this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $4,000 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 licence suspension," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The licensee of the food premises had a record of two convictions for the same offence in March and October last year. A total fine of $3,300 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days in December last year.
     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).
