KG Catering hit with second fine in less than 3 months, suspended for 2 weeks over food hygiene issues

SINGAPORE – Food and beverage catering company KG Catering has been penalised for the second time in less than three months and will be suspended for two weeks from Tuesday (Jan 23) to Feb 5.

According to a press release from the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), the catering company failed to ensure the premises were free from the plague and sold and prepared food that was likely contaminated. Each offence carried six penalty points.

“A driving licence holder who accumulates 12 or more penalty points in a 12-month period may have their licence disqualified for two or four weeks or cancelled,” the SFA said.

KG Catering was also fined $3,000 for the two offences, part of a $6,000 fine imposed on it last November for hygiene breaches that resulted in 92 cases of food poisoning.

Food handlers to attend course again

According to its website, the catering company serves both local and international Halal-certified cuisine for corporate and home events. It is located at 171 Kampong Ampat.

The SFA added that all food handlers working in the suspended premises will be required to re-attend and pass the Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) Food Safety Course Level 1 before they can return to work. All food hygiene inspectors working in the suspended premises are also required to re-attend and pass the WSQ Food Safety Course Level 3.

Food operators are reminded by the SFA to observe good food and personal hygiene practices at all times and to only employ registered food handlers. It will not hesitate to take strong action against anyone found to be in breach of the Environmental Public Health Act.

Violators can report any violations via the SFA online form or by calling the hotline (6805-2871).
