KG Catering gets S$6,000 fine over hygiene lapses such as cockroach, rodent infestations linked to 92 food poisoning cases

SINGAPORE — KG Catering was issued a S$6,000 fine on Wednesday (Nov 1) for multiple hygiene offences after more than 90 people fell ill due to gastroenteritis from food supplied by the company.

Food safety is a joint responsibility as food can be contaminated anywhere along the food chain, said SFA.

“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,” said the agency. 

Food establishments should ensure their premises are clean and well maintained, as well as adhere to proper food hygiene and food safety requirements, it added.

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

If convicted, offenders may be fined up to S$2,000 and in the case of a continuing offence, a further fine of up to S$100 for every day or part thereof during which the offence continues after conviction. CNA
