The outlets have been given a warning and told to oversee their kitchen staff and food preparation.
OMG Restaurant in Askari 3 was sealed during the second raid.


Commissioner Memon spoke with Dawn, stating that she received a complaint about OMG about smelly burgers. Resultantly, their kitchen was raided and the condition of the kitchen turned out to be “pathetic, as there were cockroaches everywhere and the jars laid without a lid so the restaurant was sealed”.

She added that the food outlets had to obtain medical examination certificates from the district health authority and that it was mandatory for the food outlets to get the medical test of the chefs and workers twice a year and obtain medical reports from government hospitals.

She also said the provincial government had directed to take strict measures against putting people’s lives at risk and she plans on conducting more surprise visits in the cantonment areas in coming days.
