Food-Safety-Team-Checking-16Oct18-PathankotChandigarh, October 16, 2018 (Yes Punjab News)

In yet another one of its kind illicit movement of substandard sweets, the Food Safety Team in two different inspections nabbed two newspaper carrying vehicles smuggling alleged adulterated sweets, informed Mr. Kahan Singh Pannu, Commissioner Food and Drug Administration Punjab.


At about 4:30 am, the Food Safety Team Pathankot intercepted a TATA Ace vehicle carrying 150 kg boondi dana and about 100 kg burfi. The driver disclosed that the boondi dana was associated with Inderjit Krishanlal & Sons, Gandhi Camp Jalandhar and produced a challan for the same but no proof regarding carrying burfi was produced.


In a similar incident, the same team intercepted a Tata 407 at Dhangu Road carrying 4.05 quintals of sweets linked with Kishore Petha House, Mukerian, hidden under the newspaper stock. It also had 1000 kg of sweets linked with Lovely Sweets, Nakodar Road, Jalandhar. The samples of sweets namely ladoos, gulabjamun, burfi and gurh-paare were seized.


Appreciating the vigilance of the teams, Mr. Pannu said that the entire staff of the Commissionerate is working with utmost dedication and sincerity for the success of Tandarust Punjab Mission. The teams are out in field, performing duty when the fellow citizens are asleep in their cosy rooms. The voluntary participation of women in ‘wee-hours raids’ deserves a special appreciation, said he. He said that Food Safety Commissionerate is committed to put an end to the menace of adulteration.
