Loosely packed kebabs banned

SRINAGAR, Jan 19: Jammu and Kashmir Drug and Food Control Department today banned sale of loosely packed kebabs in Srinagar owing to adverse reports against them.
An official told Excelsior that the samples which were collected from different places were found to have contained maximum skin pieces, feathers, charcoal, masoor dal with objectionable order. The sample was declared as unsafe under section 3(22) and section 7 and misbranded, he said.
“We have completely banned the sale of these kababs unless they do not meet the recommended standards and mention clearly the ingredients used,” said Assistant Food Commissioner, Hilal Ahmad, adding: “we have no problems if it would have passed the test.”
Pertinently, the officials acted after Excelsior exclusively reported that these kebabs were being sold without any regulation last week.
