Kota Kinabalu: Six premises at the popular Waterfront nightspot here were ordered closed for two weeks after rats and cockroaches were found scurrying the kitchen and storerooms on Thursday evening.

Routine inspections carried out by the Sabah Health Department (SHD) on some 21 bars and restaurants saw the issuance of ten compounds under Reg. 34 (1) of the Food Hygiene Regulations 2009.

The compounds, depending on the premise licence, ranged between RM500 and RM1000.

SHD Food Safety and Quality Health Inspector Rozita Ibrahim said the offence was a failure to maintain hygiene standards including those of the food handlers.

“If we find rats, the place will automatically be shut down. Rat faeces were found in a few premises while many had cockroaches and flies."
