PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Food Safety Authority (FSA) on Friday seized over 2000 packs of substandard cold drinks in Kohat.

According to details, Food Safety Authority (FSA) intercepted a vehicle carrying over 2,000 packs of substandard cold drinks on the Indus Highway Kohat.

FSA Deputy Director Operations Kamran Khan Yousafzia said that the vehicle was transporting the low quality cold drinks to Kohat from Peshawar when intercepted by the FSA team on the Indus Highway.

He added that the operations against fake and substandard cold drinks were in full swing in Kohat since late March 2019, in which nearly 40,000 such drinks were seized along with three vehicles, which were later returned. He added that two distribution points were also sealed in these operations.

Yousafzai said that in another operation at Shakar Dara, a remote area of Kohat, two outlets were sealed due to presence of harmful ingredients. He said a total of 58 outlets were inspected by FSA team in Shakar Dara, among which a bakery was sealed for using nonfood colours and a grocery shop sealed for selling China Salt.

The official said repeated warnings were given to outlets owners after which the violating shops were sealed.
