RAWALPINDI: People dining out should be careful where they are eating and check the quality of the food and environment of the place, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) Director Operations North Region Bilawal Abro said.

He said that it was a responsibility of the citizens to make sure that they are eating quality food in restaurants and different eateries of the city.

Abro said the authority was working to eradicate adulteration and ensure food security. He said PFA teams are checking milk tankers coming from different regions at the entrance of the city. There are proper milk kits that help to check milk quality precisely and efficiently, he said and the team disposes off unhealthy and adulterated milk on the spot.

He said the authority is operating in the province and has successfully carried out operations against unhygienic and dead-meat suppliers, substandard food items and other poor quality household goods manufacturers in different districts.
