Food handlers working on these premises must also re-attend and pass the WSQ Food Safety Course Level 1 before they can resume work.

As such, they reminded food operators to constantly observe good food and personal hygiene. In addition, operators should engage only registered food handlers.

“SFA will not hesitate to take firm action against anyone found to be in violation of the Environmental Public Health Act,” the agency said.

They urged members of the public who come across poor food safety practices in eateries not to patronise such outlets.
