Poultry rest day in Hong Kong set for May 25
The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department reminds sellers
and shoppers that the next poultry rest day falls on May 25.
Operators of market stalls and fresh provision shops selling live poultry
must suspend business in the afternoon and evening for thorough cleaning
and disinfection. Retailers should strictly observe rest day conditions and
ensure all live birds remaining in their stalls or shops are slaughtered before
Stall owners and licensees 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 each poultry outlet. Those who breach the
conditions may have their shop licences or tenancies
