Food safety department today seized food items sold at non licensed vendors without abiding the rules and regulations laid down by Food Safety and Standards Wing, Imphal West.
A team led by S. Bimolakumari Devi, Designated Officer (Food Safety)/CMO, Imphal West and SDPO, Imphal West, A. Ghanashyam Sharma conducted a food safety drive today at Keishamthong, Chingamakha, Nagamapal Lai Ishig Chaibi and Kangjabi Leirak. Unregistered vendors and Butcher shops which are found violating the norms of food safety regulation were closed down and samples of the food items were being seized for further investigation.
While addressing reporters, CMO, Bimola Kumari Devi said that the drive was conducted for market inspection under the Food safety standards Act, 2006, Rules and Regulations, 2011 after reports of unhygienic and unregulated items including meat products being sold in the market reached them. The department started taking greater precaution after increasing reports of swine flu infections started pouring in from various parts of the country.
She further said that the vendors are being asked to present themselves at the department to get them registered and also they may be made to realise about the food safety procedures and legal compliances required.
