Subang Jaya council shuts down eatery in Sunway Metro

PETALING JAYA (Jan 16): The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) ordered an eatery in the Sunway Metro commercial area to close for 14 days during a joint operation against dirty restaurants with its relevant departments, the Star reported today.

MPSJ Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid told the Star that the eatery had violated the Food Establishment Licensing By-Laws (MPSJ) 2007.

He said a cockroach infestation was found on the premises and the owner did not adhere to proper food handling standard operation procedures.

“The operation was done to compel restaurant owners to abide by the existing laws. We hope to improve cleanliness and raise civic consciousness among business owners and traders here, and to turn the backlanes into safe and attractive spaces for people to walk along.”

The Star also reported that 23 other eateries in Jalan PJS 11/28A and Jalan PJS 11/28B were also inspected by officers from MPSJ’s building, health, enforcement and licensing departments.

Out of the 23 eateries, three were found to be operating without a licence.
