Rat activity found at Marina Square
Inspections by the National Environment Agency (NEA) have found rodent activity in the false ceilings of 14 food shops and food stalls at Marina Square, and at one of the mall's bin centres.
This followed the discovery of a dead rat in a vegetable dish at the mall's Hotpot Culture restaurant earlier this month, reported The Straits Times online.
The agency said enforcement action will be taken against three premises - one of which was found with rat droppings and another two, which were found to be dirty. The rest were cautioned to ensure proper housekeeping, food storage and waste management, an NEA spokesman said.
An advisory on pest prevention and control measures was also distributed to the store operators.
The shopping mall's management has intensified pest control measures and requested that its tenants submit pest control reports for monitoring.
