LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) on Sunday discarded as many as 28,700 kilogrammes of unwholesome food after removing stock, of companies which failed the sampling campaign, from the market.

All confiscated material was discarded as per the authority’s eco-friendly policy to prevent environmental pollution. PFA Director General Captain (retd) Muhammad Usman said the food safety watchdog always pays attention to environmental effects while disposing of unwholesome and adulterated food products.

He said the authority has discarded 17,300kg of spices from brands that failed the sampling campaign as well as 11,400kg of sauces and ketchup as well. He said all stock was seized by the PFA's food safety teams after removing them from the market as per standard operating procedures.

Usman maintained that the authority’s utmost priority was to ensure the provision of quality food to the people.
