The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has suspended the licence of a food processing establishment - Fuyen Food Pte Ltd with effect from 28 November 2019 until further notice.
2 On 13 November 2019, during an inspection of the said premises, cockroach infestation was observed in the processing and raw material storage rooms. In addition, several lapses relating to poor maintenance of the premises and food hygiene practices were observed.
3 In the interest of public health, implicated cooked food items were discarded on the spot. Fuyen Food Pte Ltd was instructed to rectify the lapses and take necessary measures to improve the cleanliness of its premises.
4 Food safety is a joint responsibility as food can be contaminated anywhere along the food chain. While SFA continues to be vigilant and works to ensure that regulatory measures are in place and properly enforced, the industry and consumers must also play their part.
5 All food operators should ensure that their premises are clean and well-maintained, and staff are adequately trained on proper food safety management. SFA will take enforcement action against food operators who do not adhere to regulations or comply with food hygiene and food safety requirements. Offenders are liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to both.
6 Members of the public who come across poor hygiene practices in food establishments are advised not to patronise them and provide feedback via our online feedback form (www.sfa.gov.sg/feedback) or call our Contact Centre at 6805 2871 with details for our follow-up investigations.
