Wakrah civic officials conduct inspection of food facilities

Al Wakrah Municipality's Health Control Section carried out 390 inspection tours on food facilities and outlets during July.

These resulted in issuing 17 violation reports of law no 18 for 1990 on Human Food Control. While 15 were resolved in reconciliation, the two other violations were referred to the security department concerned for necessary legal procedures. The total amount of collected fines during this period amounted to QR120,000. 

Besides, 299kg of foodstuff were destroyed for being unfit for consumption. The director of Al Wakrah Municipality issued an administrative decision to shut a restaurant for seven days for keeping foodstuff unfit for consumption. 

The section also received 10 related complaints that were treated immediately and 12 affidavits signed by a number of food shops to remove their violations.
