LUCKNOW: Nearly 50% samples collected by officials of food safety department were found to be sub-standard in a check conducted on Monday. Most of the adulteration has been reported in dairy products such as mixed milk, khoya and raw milk. Around eight samples of paneer (cottage cheese) too have been found to be sub-standard (prime facie by the department). With almost 12 days left for Holi, the department tested dairy food items being sold in the district.

Some samples of mixed milk found sub-standard were collected from tea shops outside City Station and Badshahnagar station, in addition to a couple of eateries located in the busy Charbagh locality. Some of the private dairies in Alambagh and one shop selling milk in the VVIP locality of Kalidas Marg also came under scanner. A senior official told TOI that out of 80 samples (of various food items) collected by the department, 35 have been found to be sub-standard. The department has also issued a 30-day notice to the owners/management of these food joints/eateries, after which case may be lodged against the erring food joints/eateries and accordingly legal action would be initiated.

In some shops, officials also detected a couple of samples of sweetmeat kalakand with silver foil containing some extraneous material and samples have been sent for elaborate testing. Samples of cooking medium like ghee, sweets such as milk cake, besan and urad daal have also been taken by food inspectors and officials are of the view that prima facie these items violate some provisions of laws pertaining to food safety.
