Food-safety authorities have issued a warning to a restaurant in Lok Fu after a plate of Mandarin fish with pine nuts was found to contain the banned veterinary drug malachite green.
The Centre for Food Safety did not rule out prosecuting the Imperial Kitchen at the Lok Fu Shopping Centre.
Restaurant chairman Chan Wai- cheung said it has canceled its order with the fish supplier.
A spokeswoman said the eatery is helping the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department with its investigation.
