A FILTHY noodle processing factory in Bandar Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, is the latest outlet ordered to close by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) for violating health and safety regulations.
Officers from the DBKL Health and Environment Department found dirty floors and signs of rat infestation within the premises.
Employees too were found not adhering to food hygiene standards.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Dahlan said the officers found packaged noodles left on dirty floors.
“The factory has to close for 14 days and has been ordered to clean up, ” he said.
The closure order was issued under Section 11 of the Food Act 1983.
Previously, DBKL ordered closures of a tofu and yong tau foo factory for similar offences.
The tofu factory was shut permanently for its disgusting conditions and it was discovered that the business had been operating without a licence from the time it was set up in 1989.
