FEHD cancels licence of restaurant in Yuen Long
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene today (May 7) cancelled the licence of a restaurant in Yuen Long, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally and failing to keep the food room clean.
     The restaurant, Bum Mei Sin Kitchen, is located at Shop 10, 10A, 11, on the ground floor and the outside seating accommodation at shop front, Ho King Building, 10-28 Hop Yick Road, Yuen Long.
     "Between December 2019 and last November, four convictions for the above-mentioned breaches were recorded against the restaurant. A total fine of $15,800 was levied by the court and 65 demerit points were registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system. The contraventions resulted in the cancellation of the licence," a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
     The licensee of the restaurant had a record of four convictions between January and June 2019 for extending the business area illegally. A total fine of $33,500 was levied and 60 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to licence suspensions for seven days in May 2019 and 14 days this January, respectively.
     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/licence-foodPremises-rest.html).
