SINGAPORE: Food caterer Elsie's Kitchen's food hygiene grade has been downgraded to a C after a food poisoning incident in February involving dozens of people, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) confirmed.
The agency said on its website that 52 people reported "having gastroenteritis symptoms" after eating food provided by the caterer on Feb 1.
Following investigations, SFA adjusted the caterer's food hygiene grade to a C with effect from May 24 and the grade will be reviewed in a year. The caterer held an A grade previously.
SFA will also keep the premises at 21 Second Chin Bee Road under surveillance, the agency added.
Elsie's Kitchen is a halal buffet catering provider in Singapore, serving local food for corporate events and weddings.
