The Chinese restaurant was sealed and fined due to its poor hygiene and violation for health standards. The fine was a total of Rs.50,000 for not meeting the criteria set by the PFA. There were expired and stale food items discovered by the food authority being used in the kitchen of this renown eatery.

The PFA team was led by Director General, Noorul Amin Mengal who conducted a raid on the different restaurants.

Recently, in order to build a better and healthier Punjab, the PFA decided to ban the manufacturing and sale of banaspati ghee by July 2020.

The hazardous effects on the human body have been cited as the main reason for the ban. Only a mere 0.5% of trans fat (trans-fatty acids) will be allowed in production.
