Heavier penalty required

A state health department enforcement officer placing a closure notice on the front door of a bread factory.

STATE health committee chairman A. Sivanesan has called on the Federal Government to review the penalty for those found guilty of not adhering to the Food Act.

Sivanesan said the current penalty for those found guilty was insufficient to deter those in the food-related industry from being careless when it came to proper food safety and handling.
