Raj's Banana Leaf restaurant workers not vaccinated, Health Ministry issues notices


KUALA LUMPUR: The Health Ministry has issued three food handling notices to the Raj’s Banana Leaf Restaurant’s owner for not having anti-typhoid vaccination for its workers and for not attending food handling training.

The notices were also issued as the restaurant was not registered with the ministry and because the premises failed to be pest-free, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.

He said that the ministry had issued the 32B notices of the Food Act 1983 besides Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) shutting down the premises Wednesday after the Food Safety and Quality division of the Ministry and DBKL investigated the restaurant.

“The ministry carries out checks on food premises as a routine,” he said in a statement Wednesday.

Dr Noor Hisham said that from 2016 until today (May 30), 289,919 checks had been carried out on food premises nationwide.

Of this, 5,587 (2%) of the premises, which include restaurants and food outlets, were found to be unclean and were shut down under Section 11 of the Food Act 1983, he said.

As many as 40,288 compounds had been issued to owners of food premises who did not adhere to the provisions of the Food Cleanliness Regulations 2009, he added.
