The National Environment Agency (NEA) will be suspending the licence of foodshop (Prata Wala) at 23 Serangoon Central, #02-K05, NEX, Singapore 556083 under the Points Demerit System. The period of suspension is two weeks from 21/06/2016 to 04/07/2016.
The licensee has accumulated 12 demerit points over the last 12 months and fined a total of $800 for the following offences:
Failed to keep licensed premises free of cockroach infestation
Depending on his past record, a licensee who accumulates 12 or more demerit points during a 12-month period may have his licence suspended for a period of either two or four weeks, or revoked. All food handlers working in the suspended premises would also be required to attend and pass the Basic Food Hygiene Course again, before they can resume work as food handlers.
NEA takes a serious view of these offences and would like to remind food operators to observe good food and personal hygiene practices at all times, and to engage only registered food handlers. NEA will not hesitate to take firm action against anyone found to be in violation of the Environmental Public Health Act.
In the interest of maintaining a high standard of food hygiene at all eating establishments, we would also like to advise members of the public who come across poor hygiene practices in food establishments not to patronise such outlets but to call our 24-hour NEA Contact Centre at 1800 - CALL NEA (1800 - 2255632) with details for our follow-up investigations.
