Eateries shut in health safety blitz

19th April, 2017

By ALIZA ALAWI

SANDAKAN: Rats, cockroaches and swarms of houseflies were among the infestations discovered during spot-checks on the town’s eateries.

As a result, three restaurants, all specialising in seafood, have been ordered to close immediately, said Sandakan health officer Dr Johari Awang Besar.

Eight other diners were put on public hygiene watch – three ordered to clean up their premises and another five served with compound notices.

The tough measures followed a major public health blitz involving 29 officers from the district health office, and six from Sandakan Municipal Council.

In total, 14 food premises were inspected during the special operation carried out across the town on Monday, said Dr Johari.

Three restaurant operators who were served with closure orders had been given two weeks to clean up the premises.

“They will be allowed to reopen for business if we are satisfied that they have complied with hygiene regulations,” he said.

Rats, cockcroaches and houseflies were found inside some of the restaurants checked during the operation.

And Dr Johari urged operators of restaurants and other eateries to ensure their premises conformed to hygiene regulations and that food served to customers was clean and safe to eat.
