Hong Kong Poultry rest day set for February 25

HONG KONG - The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department reminds poultry stall operators and the public that the next poultry rest day falls on February 25.

Operators of market stalls and fresh provision shops selling live poultry must suspend business on the rest day to carry out thorough cleaning and disinfection.

All live poultry retailers should strictly observe rest day conditions and ensure that all live poultry remaining in their stalls or shops are slaughtered before Saturday.

Stall owners and licensees are reminded they must not remove any live poultry from their premises to avoid slaughtering of the unsold poultry before the start of the rest day.
