SFA suspends Ya Kun Family Cafe and King of Prawn Noodles in Jurong Point over hygiene concerns

The Singapore Food Agency suspended Ya Kun Family Cafe and King of Prawn Noodles at Jurong Point for two weeks due to hygiene issues.

Accumulating 12 demerit points each within a year led to their suspension for failing to address infestations twice.



SINGAPORE: The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has announced the suspension of two eateries in Jurong Point shopping mall, namely Ya Kun Family Cafe and King of Prawn Noodles, due to food hygiene issues.

The suspension will be effective from 13 to 26 December, accompanied by an S$800 fine imposed on each establishment, stated SFA in a statement issued on Wednesday.

Both licensees each accumulated 12 demerit points within the last 12 months, after failing to ensure their premises were free of infestations in two instances.

According to the SFA, all food handlers and food hygiene officers working in the eateries will have to re-attend and pass a safety course before they can resume work.

The licensees are also required to ensure that all food hygiene officers working on their premises, if any, re-attend and pass the Workforce Skills Qualifications Food Safety Course Level 3.

“SFA takes a serious view of these offences and would like to remind food operators to observe good food and personal hygiene practices at all times, and to engage only registered food handlers.”

“SFA will not hesitate to take firm action against anyone found to be in violation of the Environmental Public Health Act,” added the statement.

Ya Kun earlier faced criticism as the price of 12.5% increase for the “Set A” meal

Ya Kun, a popular breakfast destination in Singapore recognized for its delicious and economical menu items, recently triggered conversations on Reddit due to purported price changes in their renowned Ya Kun Kaya Toast’s “Set A.”

A Reddit post highlighted a claimed 12.5% surge in the cost of Set A, sharing a menu photo displaying the updated price of S$6.30.

The user wrote in the caption, stating, “(The cost of) Yakun Set A price increased by 12.5% from today onwards. Up 31% from January 2021.”

Set A from the chain is the most basic option, consisting of two slices of Kaya Toast with butter, two soft-boiled eggs, and the choice of a regular hot beverage, either coffee or tea.

The price rise could be linked to the global phenomenon of inflation, notably heightened by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and escalating geopolitical tensions in recent years.
