Three nasi kandar outlets in Alor Star slapped with 14-day closure order for being unhygienic

ALOR SETAR 10 AUGUST 2017. Pegawai Kesihatan Kedah melekatkan notis arahan penutupan restoran nasi kandar di Jalan Pegawai selama 14 hari berkuat kuasa hari ini untuk tindakan lanjut disebabkan kotor. STR/ZULIATY ZULKIFLI

MO, 12/8/2017, ALOR STAR – A nasi kandar restaurant in Jalan Seberang Perak here was slapped with a 14-day closure order after its workers were found processing roti canai flour on top of the sewerage cover, behind the outlet.

The restaurant was also found to have utilised two day old used cooking oil to fry food. The temporary closure order was also slapped on two other nasi kandar outlets in Lebuhraya Darul Aman and Jalan Lencong Barat for failing to comply with hygienic regulations during an inspection by the Kedah Islamic Religious Department (JAIK) on Thursday.

JAIK assistant director (Halal Management Division) Rosyadah Ramli said in it’s four hour operation, the department inspected six nasi kandar outlets in the city. “From the six outlets, three were slapped with immediate 14-day closure order for failing to comply with regulations concerning hygienic practice. Among others we found workers at one of the outlets processing roti canai flour on top of sewerage cover at the back of the restaurant and cockroach droppings in the other premises. Some of the raw materials are also not properly concealed, exposing the kitchen to rats presence,” she said.

The operation was jointly undertaken with Kedah Health Department, the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry and Alor Star City Council (MBAS). All the three premises issued with the temporary closure have been ordered to carry out cleaning works before they are allowed to resume their business.
