Madras HC to shut down ‘YUM’ products like Kurkure, KFC

Though the company had denied the claim, the Lokayukta had issued notice seeking a report by August 5 next.

Citing reports about bacteria in samples of products sold by Kentucky Fried Chicken, a petition has been filed in the Madras High Court bench here seeking a direction to Union and Tamil Nadu governments to cancel or withdraw licenses given to 'YUM' products such as 'kurkure', KFC, Heavens Chicken and Marry Brown, reported PTI.

Petitioner R Devarishi, a city-based advocate, wanted a preliminary inquiry into the ingredients of the eatables and to shutdown the wholesale and retail outlets if proved positive.

He said Balala Hakkula Sangam, an NGO, had approached the Lokayukta in Hyderabad seeking the Telegana and Andhra Pradesh governments to close down the KFC outlets as some of the samples were found to have E-coli and Salmonella bacteria.

Though the company had denied the claim, the Lokayukta had issued notice seeking a report by August 5 next.

The samples were taken from five outlets in Hyderabad on June 18 this year and A.V.Krishnakumari, a food analyst, had confirmed the presence of E.coli and Samonella bacteria, the petition claimed.

The petitioner sought a direction to collect the samples of YUM products in Tamil Nadu and send them to the laboratory for test reports within a time frame for further course of action, the petitioner said.
