Roasted meat supplier, seafood importer fined over food safety lapses

Meanwhile, food importer Golden Ocean Seafood was fined S$25,000 for failing to arrange for SFA to inspect, examine and certify three live oyster consignments from France in December 2022 before selling them.

For failing to prevent the offence from being committed, the company’s director, Sakita Goichi, was also fined S$25,000.

SFA reminded importers that fish products must be inspected, examined and certified by an authorised examiner before they are sold, distributed or exported.

Fish products found to be unfit for human consumption will be seized and disposed of, said SFA.

Those who fail to arrange for their fish imports to be inspected, examined, and certified by an authorised examiner before sale or distribution may be jailed up to 12 months, fined up to S$10,000, or both.

Offenders who sell fish consignments which have not been inspected may be jailed up to two years, fined up to S$50,000 or both. The jail term and fine go up to three years and S$100,000 respectively for repeat offenders.
