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.
