Dirty eateries in Penang never learn

Being a Penangite, I am proud of my little state and the great food available here.

However, one thing I am not too proud of is the filthy state some of the eateries are in.

Despite numerous raids and warnings, many restaurants continue to operate in terribly filthy conditions.

I know these restaurants are trying to make profits, but does that mean putting your customers in hospital?

The sad part is that these restaurants are also putting our kids in danger.

Kids love having fruit juices and using rotten fruit just to make extra profits is certainly not the way to go.

From filthy utensils to unclean preparation methods, these restaurants never seem to learn.

I guess one way is for the authorities to close them down once and for all.

Issuing numerous warnings and summons is certainly not helping and the only solution would be to shut them down.

It is better for these irresponsible lot to be closed down than to have an island-full of people who are down with food poisoning.
