IN A BID to raise awareness on cleanliness, the Klang Municipal Council has called on the public to stay away from dirty eateries.
Council president Datuk Mohammad Yaacob said it was high time for the public to boycott unhygienic food outlets.
Mohammad said many operators had failed to improve the cleanliness in their premises and the public should not patronise these outlets.
Mohammad said he was dissapointed with the cleanliness standard of most of the food outlets in the royal town.
He said a majority of the outlets were rated ‘B’ and ‘C’ by the council’s Health Department and it was a true reflection of the overall cleanliness standards.
“Almost half of the eateries obtain ‘C’s while only a small number scored ‘A’s.
“I am surprised to find that some of the most popular outlets in town were given ‘C’ ratings,” he said .
Mohammad added that many of these outlets seemed to be packed with customers in spite of the cleanliness levels.
“Customers should stop patronising such outlets so that the operators will realise that they have to improve the cleanliness level of their premises.
“We should not only look for good food but ensure the premises are clean,” he said.
On its part, Mohammad said, the council would continue with its enforcement action against the dirty eateries.
