The company says all the recommended alterations were completed yesterday.

When contacted, Marketing & Public Relations Manager at Tastee, Tara Goulbourne said she could not disclose the infrastructure changes that were recommended.

However, Tastee says the closure of its New Kingston branch by public health officials was the first such instance in the company's 50-year history.
