Kalpetta: The food safety department has started inspections after several complaints were received regarding full jar soda, the drink that has been trending in Kerala lately.
During inspections held in Kalpetta town, food safety department found that shopkeepers were serving full jar soda without complying to any of the norms.
The water used to clean the large and small glasses in which the drink is served was not being changed. The under-side of the small glasses, which are dropped into the larger glasses filled with soda, were not cleaned properly. Officials said that such lapses could lead to food poisoning.
While buying refreshing drinks like the full jar soda, people should be careful that the shop and its surrounds were clean and hygienic. If they find any issue with the quality or hygiene, people should refuse the product, the officials said.
