Shop owner fined RM3k for placing beer and soft drinks on same rack

A sundry shop owner in Ayer Tawar, Perak was fined RM3,000 for placing alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages on the same rack. At a press conference yesterday, Beruas MP Ngeh Koo Ham said the shop owner was fined under Rule 361 (5) of the Food Regulation 1985. Under sub-regulation (5)(a), alcoholic beverages shall be displayed for sale in a separate display cabinet/shelf apart from the display cabinet/shelf used for other foods. Ngeh argued that under the wording of the parent law - Food Act 1985 - the purpose of the law was to protect the public from health hazards and fraud in the preparation and use of food.
