Phagwara, Mar 13 (PTI)
Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Iqbal Singh Sandhu today slapped a fine of Rs one lakh and twenty six thousand on 30 local shops and eateries for allegedly selling adulterated food items.
The fine was imposed after the samples collected by the District Food Safety Officer (DFSO) of the Health Department during the last two months tested positive, he said.
The DFSO had referred the case to the ADCs court.
The samples were taken from dhabas, sweetshops, dairies, restaurants and food corners.
Sandhu warned of heavier penalty in case the eateries violated the norms again.
