Stale poultry meat and biriyani, along with soft drinks stored beyond their date of expiry, were seized by Food Safety Officials from two hotels in Charring Cross here on Tuesday and destroyed.

Officials said that a team, led by Designated Food Safety Officer Karunanidhi, along with Food Safety Officers from the Ooty, Coonoor, and Gudalur municipal areas, D. Nandakumar, S. Govindaraj and S. Senthil Kumar, inspected six hotels in the Charring Cross area on Tuesday, as part of a routine exercise.

However, the officials said that they found that chicken and biriyani at two of the hotels had been prepared a few days ago and had been stored inside a freezer to be reheated and sold to the public.

They seized 15 kg of chicken and 5 kg of stale biriyani from the two hotels and destroyed the items. They also destroyed around 20 litres of soft drinks which were kept in the stores beyond their date of expiry. They warned the hotel owners of stern action, including cancellation of their licence if the offence was repeated.
