A catering company has had its food hygiene grade downgraded to “C” by the National Environment Agency (NEA) following multiple cases of food poisoning last year.

54 people reported symptoms of gastroenteritis, or stomach flu, after consuming food provided by Team Catering on 24 November last year, said the NEA in a press release on Thursday (15 February).

The new grade, down from “B”, takes effect from Thursday and will be reviewed in 12 months.

The NEA added that it will keep Team Catering’s premises at 3015 Bedok North Street 5, #01-01, Shimei East Kitchen under surveillance.

Members of the public can view the revised grade after 12 months on NEA’s website, added the authorities.

According to its website, Team Catering, established since 1991, is halal-certified and operates out of three central kitchens. Two of them are located in Bedok with the third one located in the western part of Singapore.

Yahoo News Singapore has reached out to the catering company for comments.
