Officials of the Public Health Department of the Colombo Municipal Council had been successful in detecting several hotels that had been serving unhygienic food. The instant raid was conducted within the Colombo City last night. Our correspondent Suneth Hewavitharana said that several teams carried out the raid within the City throughout last night with the involvement of the Police. They witnessed that food prepared at certain hotels were not even suitable for animal consumption. Some kitchens were used by workers as their toilets. It was also possible to detect not only flies but also worms were found on food. Health authorities are of the view that the public should be made aware of the status of such hotels. They emphasized that cleanliness of hotels cannot be judged from the external appearance. They emphasized that they would continue to carry out such raids on behalf of the health of the public.
