The National Environment Agency (NEA) today (20 May) lifted the suspension of Goodwood Park Hotel’s bakery after it was satisfied that the required food safety measures have been implemented to rectify the lapses detected earlier.
NEA suspended the bakery’s operation on April 22 after a total of 183 food poisoning cases were found to be linked to the spate of food poisoning which broke on that day. Most people affected had eaten the bakery’s durian pastries. The hotel’s bakery was ordered to stop all production, sale and distribution of all pastries.
During the suspension, NEA worked with the bakery to ensure the kitchen’s cleanliness and to ensure the food handlers are re-trained on safe food handling practices. All the bakery’s food handlers also had to undergo medical screening.
