LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) under the supervision of its Director General Irfan Memon raided and sealed a production unit of Malik Foods on Sheikhpura Road and seized more than 4,000 kilogrammes of unwholesome food.
Meanwhile, the authority sealed the factory for lack of cleanliness and manufacturing substandard biscuits and snacks. PFA Director General Irfan Memon said that biscuits were being produced with expired food ingredients while the team also witnessed the usage of rusty vessels, stagnant water in the production area, poor storage system and abundance of insects.
The factory was guilty of noncompliance of instructions; it failed to produce a food license and record before the authority.
PFA watchdog team confiscated nearly 3,000kg ready food, 1,000kg raw material, banaspati ghee, artificial sweeteners, chemicals and loose non-food-graded colours.
