Food Points Fined for Using Unhygienic Cooking Oil.
Punjab Cracks Down on Dirty Oil! 4,000 Warnings, 1,100 Fines – Food Safety Takes Center Stage!
Lahore, Pakistan: Eating out in Punjab just got safer!
In a bold crackdown, the Punjab Food Authority (PFA) launched a province-wide operation last month, exposing shocking unhygienic practices and sending a strong message to food businesses: prioritize health or face the consequences.
Zero Tolerance for Rancid Oil:
Thousands of food outlets felt the heat of the PFA’s inspections. A staggering 5,679 premises were visited, revealing widespread use of rancid cooking oil – a major health hazard. To combat this menace:
- 4,000 Warning Notices: Putting businesses on notice, the PFA warned those caught using subpar practices to clean up their act.
- 1,100 Hefty Fines: Those failing to comply faced the sting of financial penalties, reinforcing the seriousness of the issue.
- 47 Emergency Shutdowns: For egregious violations, 47 eateries earned an immediate “closed” sign, ensuring public safety comes first.
Seizing the Scourge:
The PFA didn’t just point fingers – they took action. Over 6,300 liters of substandard and expired oil were seized and disposed of, effectively removing this toxic threat from the food chain.
Zero Tolerance for Violators:
Holding violators accountable, the PFA filed FIRs against two food points for blatantly disregarding the PFA Act. This sends a clear message: complacency with food safety will not be tolerated.
A Safer Plate for All:
This operation isn’t just a one-off – it’s a sustained commitment to protecting public health. The PFA’s vigilance sends a clear message to food businesses: play by the rules or face the consequences.
