Hyderabad News: GHMC health department unexpectedly raided one of the top notch eateries stores like Mainland China Restaurant and G Pulla Reddy Sweets. The raids were done yesterday on 9 August. In Mainland China restaurant, they found cooked food items stored in refrigerator which were being presented as fresh stock for customers. According to the regulations of food, hotels shouldn’t preserve cooked food in fridges and serve them later.
The Pulla Reddy Sweets kitchen of Somajiguda was filled with spider webs all over in very unhygienic conditions. The officials send notices to these two places for having broken the regulation laws. Along with these two, several other food corners were also raided. But before they could continue with the work, they witnessed the shut down of the shutters. Many small restaurants and hotels shut their shutters in the areas of Ameerpet, Panjagutta and nearby places in Somajiguda in fear of the raid against them.
Certain rotten food samples collected in these raids were sent for further sampling to laboratories. Even non-vegetarian food samples were preserved in fridges. Some of them were even spoiled. The health wing officials were shocked to see how the sweet boxes were placed in racks with full of cobwebs and dust.
The employee wages weren’t given properly. The minimum wages rule was also not followed which tells that an employee should get a minimum of 6000 INR per month in any place. Some of the employees were paid 4000 INR. After seeing the conditions, the GHMC officials made it a compulsion to raid all the city food corners at all costs.
