KUALA LUMPUR: Following the permanent closure of a tofu factory earlier this week, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has now ordered the closure of a ‘yong tau foo’ factory in Pudu.

The factory at Jalan Brunei Selatan was ordered to close for 14 days for violating health and safety regulations.

A team of six DBKL health officers found signs of cockroach infestation, exposed raw food and unsanitary freezer conditions.

Officers also found that there were no proper cleaning areas and were instead washing equipment on the floor.

The factory was ordered closed under Section 11 of the Food Act 1983.

On Wednesday (June 17), a tofu factory in Jalan Pudu Ulu, Cheras was shuttered permanently for its disgusting conditions.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan said the factory in Pudu Ulu did not have a licence from the time it was set up in 1989.
