LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority on Tuesday sealed four food points and penalised two eateries along with issuing warning notices to five units over violation of the rules of PFA Act.

An operation against big food points in Lahore and its surrounding areas were conducted under the supervision of PFA Director General Irfan Memon.

Irfan Memon said that PFA team raided Butt Karahi and sealed it over worst condition of hygiene and failure to take preventative measures to control pests. The team also shut down Pak Asia Desi Karahi for using loose spices, preserving food in stinky freezers and failing to meet hygienic working environment.

F famous food point, Fazal-e-Haq Dera, was closed down due to storing food in the washroom and poor cleanliness arrangements. A team of PFA also sealed Bashir Darul Mahi on account of mislabelling and over the presence of substandard food. Meanwhile, the director general said that PFA has issued fine tickets to Nadeem Buffet and TM Coffee over failure to produce medical certificates. The FIA served warning notices on five food joints i.e. Yousaf Falooda, Bundu Khan, Hot Spot Coffee, The Hungry Bare and Matam Makkah over minor violations and directed them to improve quality.

The PFA DG stated that positive change had been witnessed in the food industry due to consistent action and the establishment of PFA training school.
