Dehradun Municipal Corporation (DMC) and the state food safety department, in a joint operation, conducted a raid on an outlet of fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) situated at Rajpur Road (Dehradun) and imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 for “poor cleanliness in the kitchen and premises.” The food safety department has also collected food samples from the outlet which have been sent to a drug-testing laboratory in Rudrapur. Speaking to TOI, municipal health officer Dr. RK Singh said that the raid was undertaken under the leadership of Ramesh Singh, food safety inspector, Dehradun. “The outlet was picked up on a random basis for inspection as part of a routine drive to ensure that cleanliness standards are being followed by eateries in the city. However, we found that the outlet wasn’t disposing food waste properly for which we imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on them,” he said.
