Paneer is a perishable commodity. Hence, the seized stock was destroyed then and there. Samples of the seized paneer were sent to the lab for testing. Action will be taken after receiving a report. A team headed by Assistant Commissioner Balu Thakur, Food Safety Officer Nilesh Khose took the action.

 

Sub-standard eatables are sold during the festival season and consumers are cheated. If anyone comes across such practices, they may contact the toll-free number 1800 222 365 and lodge a complaint. The identity of the complainant will be protected, said Pune Division Joint Commissioner Sanjay Naragude.
