KOLKATA: Continuing with raids at restaurants and eateries in Salt Lake to look into the quality of food and collect meat samples, health officials from the Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation inspected three popular food joints and restaurants close to City Centre mall.
The civic authorities collected stored meat samples from the food joints.
The Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation and Dum Dum municipality started conducting inspections at several eateries and restaurants in different parts of Salt Lake, Rajarhat and Dum Dum from second week of May to collect samples of stored meat.
Civic officials said that they have started the inspection following instructions by the state government.
Chicken and mutton samples that are stored and refrigerated for over a week at different eateries and restaurants are being collected.
“We have already sent the samples to the state government’s food safety laboratory for tests,” said Bidhannagar Corporation MMIC (Health) Pranay Roy said.
Civic officials said that strong action would be taken against the eateries and restaurants if any of the collected samples are found to be poor in quality.
