FEHD orders Yau Ma Tei restaurant to suspend business for 21 days
***************************************************************

     ‚ÄčThe Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Yau Ma Tei to suspend business for 21 days, as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
      
     The restaurant, located at Shop 1 on the ground floor of 47-57 Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, was ordered to suspend business from today (December 9) to December 29.
      
     "Four convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the restaurant between last September and this July with a total fine of $28,300 levied by the court. Sixty demerit points were also registered against the licensee under the department's demerit points system, leading to seven-day and 14-day licence suspensions running consecutively," 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).
