Ever since magi controversy has hit the country, there are several brands coming under the scanner after the issue. And in a latest development, a team including district magistrate and FDA of Meerut visited McDonald’s and Pizza Hut outlets in PVS Mall.

The officials has also collected two samples of eatables from both QSR chains and had sent them to the food-testing laboratory in Lucknow.

According the officials, the reports are likely to be out within next 20 days.

"Food authorities often skip inspecting big brands thinking they can never sell sub-standard products. So we decided to bring them under our scanner,” said Keshav Kumar, City Magistrate.

Giving details on the samples collected, chief food safety officer JP Singh, said, "We collected samples of chicken patty used in non-veg burgers and chocolate-coated crisps from McDonald's, while samples of tomato ketchup and tandoori sauce used to prepare pizzas were collected from Pizza Hut."

The chief magistrate further said other food chains such as Dominos and KFC would also be inspected soon.
