The hygiene grade of The Line Restaurant at the Shangri-La Hotel has been downgraded from “A” to “C’ following a food poisoning incident, and their new hygiene grade took effect last Friday (8 September); it will last for a period of 12 months before being reviewed again.
This comes after a food poisoning incident that took place last year, with 10 people developing gastroenteritis symptoms after eating at the restaurant on 26 December 2022, with 2 of the diners ending up in hospital.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) then conducted an investigation where they found no hygiene lapses during an inspection at the premises on 30 December 2022, but they took enforcement action against them for “selling unclean food”.
