The Food Story - At The Cross Road
I wonder how is Madam Hajara Aludeen's food business going.
She must be facing a mounting task to win back customers' trust in her family for her husband, Mr Sheik Allaudin, 70, is in the news again, today.
He's given the maximum fines totalling $9,000 for causing a massive food poisoning in April last year in one of Singapore's worst incidences in recent years.
If he fails to pay the fine, he will spend 9 weeks in jail.
48 people were hospitalised while the rest received outpatient treatment.
The poisoning led to 2 deaths although a verdict of misadventure was recorded against both deaths.
National Environment Agency senior prosecutor Abdullah Ghani said the history given by all 154 cases showed a strong and consistent association between the food poisoning outbreak and the Geylang Serai stall.
His wife is now the licensee of the new stall at the Geylang Serai Food Centre.
