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.

Officers found three live chickens in the shop in Upper Pak Tin Estate during an inspection on 27 August.

Operators of live poultry market stalls and fresh provision shops should kill all live poultry remaining at their premises before 20:00 each day. No live poultry should be kept at the market between 20:00 and 05:00 the next day.
