FEHD orders restaurant in Yau Tong to suspend business for 14 days
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Yau Tong 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 at Shop Nos. G3 and G4, G/F, Ka Kwai Arcade, Yau Tong Centre, 9-11 Ka Wing Street, Yau Tong, was ordered to suspend business from today (October 5) to October 18.
"In April and July this year, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the licensee of the restaurant. A total fine of $6,500 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 in October last year and January this year respectively. A total fine of $3,500 was levied and 30 demerit points were registered. The breaches led to licence suspension for seven days in March this year.
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 (http://www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html" target="_blank">www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
