Brooklyn Supermarket on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew has been ordered closed by the Kingston and St Andrew Public Health Department for not complying with health regulations.

The department posted a notice on the building yesterday-the same day the closure took effect.

"There should be no operation involving preparation or sale of food items during the period of closure," read the notice which the health department said if removed, would constitute an offence..

The convicted offender could be fined up to $1,000,000 or sentenced to 12 months in imprisonment.

The notice cited Brooklyn Supermarket's "non-compliance" under the Public Health (Food Handling) Regulations 1998 and (Nuisance) Regulations 1995, Amendment 2001.

No detail was offered on the breaches.

The health department said the notice will remain in force "until further advised".
