The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) is investigating a case of illegal cockle processing, and illegal storage of meat and seafood products.
SFA officers found illegal cockle processing operations at a premises in Woodlands Loop on August 25.
"The premises was also illegally used as a cold store for meat and seafood products," said SFA in a statement.
SFA seized 1040kg of illegally processed cockles as well as 6160kg of seafood and meat products.
The agency also issued a direction to suspend the processing, sale and distribution of cockles, seafood and meat products from the operator.
"Enforcement action will be taken against the operator of the unlicensed premises for illegal food processing and illegal storage of meat and seafood products," SFA added.
All food operators are reminded to obtain a proper and valid food business licence to supply food to other businesses.
Food processing and storage of meat and seafood items in unlicensed premises pose a food safety risk.
Under the Sale of Food Act and the Wholesome Meat and Fish Act, food processing facilities and cold stores for meat and seafood products can only be operated with a valid licence.
Offenders who conduct seafood processing and/or storage of meat and seafood items in unlicensed premises may face a fine of up to $10,000 and/or up to one year in jail.
