Hyderabad: Following a consumer complaint about a supermarket in Malkajgiri selling food unfit for human consumption, officials from the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) carried out inspections at the major outlet. Some samples were also taken and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Taking to Twitter, the complaint said the ‘rava laddu’ he bought from the supermarket smelled like plastic and he was vomiting after tasting it. The complaint was also attributed to the Department of Consumer Affairs of the Telangana government in the tweet.

Meanwhile, GHMC officials said based on the lab reports, appropriate action would be taken.

GHMC food inspector, Malkajgiri circle Janga Reddy said during their inspection that ‘rava laddus’ were not found for sale in the supermarket.

“Management had taken them off the shelves and staff mentioned that the sweets had been removed as they were approaching their expiry date. Samples of other products have been sent for testing and action will be taken based on the reports,” he said.
