HYDERABAD: The Task Force team of the Commissioner of Food Safety (CFS) on Thursday carried out inspections at the Lulu Mall and Sri Sri Caterers in Kukatpally of Hyderabad and found several hygiene violations.

During the inspection of the Lulu Hypermarket, the team found infested bakery items, including 10 kg of atta bread mix and 15 kg of loose baguette bread mix, which were discarded. Expired food items such as 20 kg of sesame seeds, 20 litres of toned milk, various biscuit packets and two packets of fruit juice were also discarded. Houseflies were observed near the meat storage area, the CFS tweeted.
