Call for LCA to inspect food bars, restaurants

BY JERRY SEFE

A call for routine inspection of all food outlets, kai bars and restaurants must be carried out with effect to ensure safety, health and hygiene of the people are protected.

Lizharacarlos Hlmington, a European food expert, who was in Lae for a business trip told the Post-Courier yesterday.

Ms Hlmington said it was not safe for public, especially children, in Lae to buy and eat from unhealthy food bars or restaurants operating in the city because somethings are not right with these outlets.

She said food was an essential part of human daily survival, however, if not prepared with care could result in sickness and death.

Ms Hlmington is also urging the Lae City Authority and City Council to take immediate actions before any health outbreak that might put lives of people in jeopardy.

City authorities also confirmed reports coming from the public and will thoroughly take effective actions to shutdown these outlets not abiding by the city health and food standard policy.

However, Ms Hlmington said that as a food expert she had a number of reasons based on her observations to discourage people from buying from these kai bars without any interest or favour in business whatsoever.

“I think the city authorities are not doing their job and they need to revisit these food bars and discover for themselves what these food bars are doing behind doors and conduct food sampling to determine healthy state of foods for the good of their citizens.

“I was surprised to see that these outlets do not care anymore for the health of human beings but are very much concerned about money despite knowing very well that they would have their food bars shutdown by the health authorities if reported,” she said.

Ms Hlmington said a number of kai bars owned by Asians, Indians and a few locals were not following healthy methods or rules to prepare food while the environment they were in was another thing that was unhygienic to the public.
