Food eateries fined over food safety issue in Kerala

The officials have collected about 36.75 lakh as fine following inspections conducted at various hotels and restaurants; food safety commissioner has informed the Kerala High Court.

In a recent drive by the food safety commissioner in Kerala over 12 eateries were ordered to be closed and 223 outlets were served with improvement notices.

The officials have collected about 36.75 lakh as fine following inspections conducted at various hotels and restaurants; food safety commissioner has informed the Kerala High Court.

At the same time, two tanker Lorries carrying adulterated coconut oil was confiscated, an affidavit filed by food safety commissioner Anupama TV said.

These would show that strict action is being taken against erring food business operators, including hotels and restaurants, the food safety commissioner opined.

The affidavit was filed in response to a contempt of court petition filed by Basil Attipetty alleging inaction on the part of the commissioner.

Following a high court order issued in February 2012, special drives were ordered across the state.

Inspections are conducted through inter-district squads frequently in addition to inspections during festivals and special occasions. Special drive was conducted all over the state with emphasis on ghee, pickle, payasam mix, spices and condiments, cooked meat, bakery food, chips, milk and milk products, and oil.

Surveillance at check posts were intensified with the assistance of mobile analytical labs during Onam, the affidavit filed through senior government pleader Joe Kalliyath said.
