Health Minister T. Harish Rao held a monthly review meeting with the Food Safety Department officials on Sunday. They were instructed to hold surprise checks apart from spreading awareness on food adulteration. The minister also urged people to take an active part in curbing the menace of adulteration. 


"To lodge complaints regarding food adulteration or sub-standard food, one can dial 040-21111111, or tag @AFCGHMC on Twitter. Task Force teams have to conduct surprise checks in districts. The department was provided with four mobile safety vans worth ₹2.4 crores. An upgraded food testing lab too is available. Put them to use," the minister instructed.


Telangana Food Safety officials said a FSO will take the calls and tweets round the clock.


The minister directed the officials to ensure there is no pendency in cases against food adulteration or sub-standard food. “Adulterated food leads to gastrointestinal tract disease and even cancer. The health of people would be impacted. Do not spare those who mess with the health of people," he told the officials.
