FEHD orders Yuen Long restaurant to suspend business for 14 days
The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a restaurant in Yuen Long 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 No.1 on the ground floor of Ho Wang Building, 11 Yu Wing Path, Yuen Long, was ordered to suspend business from today (November 6) to November 19.
“In this July and August, two convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the restaurant. A total fine of $7,000 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 restaurant had a record of two convictions for the same offence in March last year and May this year. A total fine of $4,700 was levied and 30 demerit points were also registered, leading to a licence suspension for seven days this July.
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).
