KARACHI: The Sindh Food Authority (SFA) launched a snap-checking near Karachi Toll Plaza and discarded hundreds of litres of adulterated milk being transported to the metropolis in early hours on Saturday, ARY News reported.
SFA officials said substandard milk was being transported to Karachi from different cities of the province. Upon checking, milk was found to be adulterated and therefore, was discarded, they added.
SFA deputy director Imtiaz Ali said fines worth Rs50,000 were also imposed. He announced to launch a similar snap-checking on two other entry points of the city – the National Highway and Hub road soon.
It is noteworthy that the Sindh Food Authority had lately raided several restaurants in the city’s North Nazimabad area over unhygienic conditions. One of the restaurants was found utilising the used oil multiple times. The items were also not properly frozen while crockery for serving food was also not clean. The team imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the restaurant.
The SFA team found hygiene standards were sheerly compromised in food making to the core. The food inspectors said they had previously served notices to the food outlets, but the restaurant owners apparently turned a blind eye to it.
Raids were also conducted in district Malir and Gulshan-e-Hadeed. Sanitary conditions and lack of fumigation facilities were found at the restaurants in some of the Malir outlets.
The SFA team also raided a bakery ‘Friend Bakers’ and imposed a fine of Rs 20,000 over poor hygiene.
