FEHD orders Mong Kok restaurant to suspend business for 14 days


     The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Mong Kok 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 a portion of G/F and Shop No. 14 and 15 on M/F, 5 Yim Po Fong Street, Mong Kok, was ordered to suspend business from today (February 20) to March 5.
     "In June and November last year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the shop. A total fine of $6,000 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 shop had a record of three convictions for failing to keep the food room clean, improper repair and cleaniness of furniture and utensils, and extending the business area illegally in July last year. A total fine of $6,100 was levied and 20 demerit points were also registered. The breaches led to a licence suspension for seven days in September in the same 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).
