HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday directed the Commissioner of Food Safety of Telangana and Additional Commissioner of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation not to disclose the results of tests conducted on food samples collected from KFC restaurants in the city for 10 days. Justice P V Sanjay Kumar was dealing with a petition filed by Yum! Restaurants (India) Pvt Ltd, challenging the action of the food safety officer in collecting the samples from 10 KFC outlets in the last week of June.

The petitioner contended that the action of the authorities is contrary to the provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 and release of the results will tarnish the image of the company. Justice Sanjay Kumar asked the respondents to file their counter affidavits by next date of hearing.
