HONG KONG - The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department reminds poultry retailers and the public that the next poultry rest day falls on December 10.

Operators of market stalls and fresh provision shops must suspend business in the afternoon and evening to carry out thorough cleaning and disinfection.

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

They must not remove any unsold live poultry from their premises to avoid slaughtering them before the start of the rest day.

The department will inspect the poultry outlets on the rest day. Failure to comply with the rest-day conditions will lead to immediate cancellation of fresh provision shop licences or termination of market-stall tenancies.
