HONG KONG - The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department has prosecuted a fresh provision shop licensee for breaching the ban on keeping live poultry at retail outlets overnight.

Department officers found four live chickens covered by two bamboo baskets inside a fresh provision shop in a market on Reclamation Street, Yau Ma Tei, September 5.

To protect public health and cut the risk of avian influenza, fresh provision shop proprietors must slaughter all live poultry remaining on their premises before 8pm daily.
