Thiruvananthapuram: In the wake of recent food poisoning incidents, the Bakers Association Kerala (BAKE) has announced that non-vegetarian mayonnaise made of raw eggs will not be served in eateries and restaurants across the state.

Instead, vegetable mayonnaise or mayonnaise made out of pasteurised eggs will be made available for customers.

The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by Health Minister Veena George with the association representatives of hotel, restaurant, bakery, street vendors and catering sectors.

“Food safety should be ensured for healthcare. While dispatching food parcels, a sticker mentioning the expiry date should be placed on them. All food establishments should get registration or licence and should cooperate with the Food Safety department’s hygiene rating,” said the minister.

She also directed that all food establishments should display the food safety department’s toll free number.

“The employees should possess fitness certificates. It doesn't matter whether the establishment is small or large; cleanliness is important,” she added.

The meeting was attended by the health department principal secretary, food safety commissioner among others.
