Although the people of Lahore are unable to fight the coronavirus, they have been shielded against another attack as hundreds of thousands of rotten eggs were set to leave Kamalia for the provincial capital.

According to 24NewsHD TV channel, the Punjab Food Authority disposed of 378,000 rotten eggs which were to be supplied to bakeries and biscuit companies while also launching an investigation against the buyers.

Punjab Food Authority DG Irfan Memon led the action during which the consignment was seized from Hassan Poultry Service located on Main Kamalia Road.

The two trucks supposed to transport the rotten eggs were also seized, said Memon, adding that the godown had been sealed due to poor storage and the foul smell caused by the rotten eggs.

He revealed that the rotten eggs returned from the market and the fresh ones were stored at the same place. The store did not have the required temperature control system and licence, said the Punjab Food Authority DG.

A case has been registered against the godown owner, as the use of rotten eggs is a serious crime under the Punjab Food Authority laws, he said

According to Memon, it is mandatory for the suppliers to dispose of the rotten eggs and mention that in the record.
