Owners of six food outlets in the district have been fined 50,000 each for selling substandard food items. They will also have to face imprisonment for five months. These orders were issued by the court of the judicial magistrate.

The samples from these outlets were taken in the last two months. The food safety wing of the health department had collected samples from 63 food outlets. Out of the samples taken, six samples failed the purity test and action has been taken against the owners.

Among the 63 outlets from where samples were collected in the last two months, the prominent ones were Canadian Pizza (Doraha), Chicken Corner on GT Road, Vishal Mega Mart, Cafe Coffee Day (BRS Nagar), Krishna Dairy and sweets (Phullanwal), Forex World-Class Hospitality Private Limited, Carl’s and Flames (Pavillion Mall).

Balvinder Singh, a food clerk said, “Under our drive, we had taken samples of food articles such as paneer, milk, rasgullas, mineral water, milk cake, barfi, and Ghee, which failed to clear the purity test.” He further added that “We have sent notices to the erring outlets already and are continuing with our drive.”
