DHS to eliminate substandard food





ISLAMABAD: Following the directives of the Capital Development Authority (CDA), Directorate Health Services (DHS) member Amir Ali Ahmed is vigorously active to eliminate the availability of substandard, adulterated and unhygienic food from the capital. Ahmad has been carrying on a successful campaign against sub-standard and unhygienic eatables for quite some time. Following the directives from the CDA administration, strong action as per law is being taken against the violators of the principles of public health and the relevant laws. Moreover, zero tolerance is being shown towards the food handlers who don’t follow the law and repeatedly violate it. The DHS has further urged all food handlers to wear proper dresses including caps, aprons and gloves. The DHS teams conducted several operations in this regard in the different areas of Islamabad. During this activity, 93 notices and 26 challans were issued, while one restaurant was partially sealed. Similarly, a samosa shop and a tea stall were also sealed. Thirty-eight food samples were gathered for further tests, while perishable items were destroyed on the spot. On the other hand, 100 liters of expired cold drinks were also confiscated. Ahmad is conducting this campaign with the help of two teams, each led by a food inspector and supervised by a health officer, while the DHS personally supervises the performance of the field teams.
