MALACCA: Traders at Jonker Walk say the sale of penis-shaped sausages is an embarrassment to the business community at the iconic night market here.

Jonker Walk Committee advisor Datuk Gan Tian Loo said on Monday traders and local community leaders were outraged by the sale of the obscenely shaped food item.

He said the committee had clearly told the outlet operator that the sale of such items were prohibited, and he began selling them a few days before Chinese New Year, adding to the traders' ire.

Gan said the operator had bought the phallic-shaped waffle maker from Taiwan, and his wares were popular among tourists, not locals.

He said the operator's actions had marred the reputation of Jonker Walk, which has been regarded as a wholesome night-market and gourmet destination.

"The traders had a meeting on Monday morning, with many expressing their disappointment," he said.

Gan said the outlet operator, who is in late 20s, admitted his mistake and asked to be forgiven, saying he only wanted to introduce novelty items in Jonker Walk.

Earlier, mayor Datuk Zainal Hussin said the operator had been served a notice that his business licence would be revoked.
