KOZHIKODE: As the temperature rose drastically in last few days paving way for more juice outlets popping at various parts in city, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued advisory to the sellers to strictly follow the provisions of food safety and standard act. The FFSAI has formed 3 teams to monitor the quality of drinks served in these outlets in the coming days.

The officials have also strictly warned the sellers to not sell any products without the license or registration issued by the food safety regulator in order to ensure quality and hygiene. This will also help the customers to identify shops that are licensed to sell the products.

 

The shops found not running in hygienic condition will have to face consequences. Gloves, head cover and aprons are a must for the people making juices or any eatery products from their respective outlets, said FSSAI assistant Commissioner Eliyamma.

FSSAI has also advised buyers to avoid products that are sold in open and those perched by flies and insects and also to check and inform the concerned authorities if they find any violations.
