Fifteen people aged 14 to 40 have come down with food poisoning after eating at a Kwun Tong restaurant September 15 to 19.
The nine men and six women suffered diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting three to 15 hours after eating there. None required hospitalization and all are stable.
The Centre for Health Protection said bacterial contamination was the likely cause.
The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department today ordered the temporary closure of King Fok Palace Korean and Japanese Restaurant at Hong Ning Road, Kwun Tong for thorough cleansing and disinfection following a cluster of food poisoning outbreaks.
The restaurant can only be re-opened when the department is satisfied that the immediate health hazard on the premises has been eliminated.
