FEHD orders restaurant in Tsuen Wan to suspend business for 14 days
     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a general 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 restaurant, located on the ground floor and the cockloft of 24 Sam Pei Square, Tsuen Wan, was ordered to suspend business from today (September 13) to September 26.

     "Two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop in April and July this year. A total fine of $7,200 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 restaurant had a record of two convictions for the same offence during last October and this February. A total fine of $5,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered, leading to a seven-day licence suspension this April.

     The spokesman reminded the licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR and other relevant regulations, 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 has been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD's website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
