FEHD orders Tsuen Wan restaurant to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Tsuen Wan 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 at Shop G, G/F (Rear Portion), 89 Chung On Street, Tsuen Wan, was ordered to suspend business from today (November 13) to November 26.
     "In May and September this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $4,700 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 shop had a record of two convictions for the same offence in March last year and June this year. A total fine of $5,300 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days in August this 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 have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
