Dirty Tempe Factory In Batu Caves Shut Down!

On Tuesday, 21 July 2020, an 5-member team from the DBKL Food Quality Unit inspected a tempe factory in the IKS Batu Caves Industrial Park, after receiving a public complaint.

They discovered that this tempe factory was unhygienic, shutting it down under Section 11 of the Food Act 1983, based on these reasons :

  • the cleanliness of the premise was unsatisfactory
  • raw materials were placed on the floor
  • food preparation was conducted on the floor
  • the floors were wet and dirty with food waste
  • the walls of the food preparation area was black with dirt
  • the food handlers (four foreign workers) were not vaccinated against typhoid
  • the food handlers did not wear any head covering, apron or shoes while preparing tempe
  • the equipment were dirty and in poor condition
  • food coverings were dirty and not replaced
  • recycled paint containers were used for food preparation

They also shared these eight pictures taken at the Batu Caves tempe factory :
