SINGAPORE — A western food stall in Hougang Central has its food hygiene grade downgraded from “B” to “C” from Thursday (9 May) due to a batch of gastroenteritis incidents earlier this year, said the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).
In a food hygiene notice issued on Thursday, the agency said that seven people were reported having gastroenteritis symptoms after eating food from 5 Star Corner Western Food between 14 and 16 January.
The stall, located at Blk 805 Hougang Central, #01-116, had its grade downgraded following investigations into the incidents.
The SFA said that it will review the stall’s grade in 12 months’ time, and that it will keep the premises under surveillance in the meantime.
The public can view the stall’s future grade on the SFA’s website.
