Singapore’s Food Police?
The Singapore Tourism Board and other officials have come under fire after the government launched a “food safety” campaign to tackle the growing problem of undercooked and undercooked food in restaurants.
The government, which oversees nearly all food sold in Singapore, has set up a website, the Food Safety and Control Board, which is the countrys first and only body to track food safety.
It has already reported more than 200 food safety violations since the start of the campaign, and more than 10,000 incidents of food poisoning, according to a spokesperson for the department.
But the Food Security and Food Safety Board has not provided data on what type of food is deemed unsafe to eat.
The campaign also includes the establishment of a food safety unit, a public information and education campaign and training.
“The Food Safety & Food Safety Department’s goal is to create a safe environment for Singaporeans to consume food,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
There are currently a handful of Singaporean restaurants that are required to conduct a food inspection, according the spokesperson.
This month, the Singapore government introduced a new rule to increase food safety and hygiene standards at restaurants.
According to the spokesperson, the rules, which were announced in June, include the establishment and regulation of a “healthy and safe food safety management team” and the requirement that food should be labelled properly.
The food inspection team will also have the authority to request specific food safety inspections from the Food and Drug Administration and the Food Control Board.
Food Safety & Safety Board spokesperson, Sarah Loo, said that the department was also expanding its enforcement activities.
While some Singaporeans may be more familiar with the rules than others, the government is taking a lot of steps to help improve food safety, including setting up an office to monitor food safety incidents and conducting food safety awareness and education campaigns.
A spokesperson for Singapore’s Ministry of Tourism said the food safety department had already started the campaign.
We want to increase public awareness on the dangers of undercooking food, and encourage Singaporeans not to eat undercooked or undercooked meat, poultry or seafood,” the spokesperson said.
Other Singaporean government agencies have also launched campaigns, including the Food Industry Development Authority and the Singapore Tourism and Culture Board.
The Food Safety Administration has also said that it will set up an enforcement unit to tackle undercooked seafood, which has become a common problem in restaurants across the country.
But the Food & Drug Administration, which regulates the sale of food in the country, has said that its staff are not trained to look at the ingredients in food and are not equipped to assess food safety risks.
In a statement, the agency said it will be monitoring the campaign closely and will respond if the campaign is deemed to be ineffective or ineffective.
