AMROHA: The licence of a Domino’s Pizza outlet at Gajraula area on NH-24 here has been revoked by the authorities after its sauce was found to be “below standard” in lab test.

The District Food Safety authority suspended the licence after the samples of tomato ketchup collected from the outlet failed to pass the lab tests.

“The decision came after samples taken from the outlet failed lab test,” Amrohha Chief Food Safety Officer Anil Singh told PTI.

However, Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd, which operates Domino’s Pizza brand in India and Sri Lanka, contested the findings and described the test as “invalid”.

“We are raising this case with the relevant respected authorities to check the validity of the suspension order, given this background,” Jubilant FoodWorks spokesperson said.

According to the company spokesperson, the tomato ketchup snack dressing product was procured by Domino's from a third party, which goes through regular testing for food safety from government accredited labs.

“The particular sample under question, was manufactured in September 2014 and collected for testing in October 2014. It failed test on ground of “package label non-compliance”, as the label was detaching from the package but “passed “on all other parameters of food safety.
