As a student, I have no other option but to eat from the KU canteen or a few shops located near the Pharmacy Department. Judging them by their appearance it seemed as though they would be better than the canteen. However, it came as a shock to get food poisoning from such a hygienic place. Unfortunately, majority of the students eat at these shops as their food is quite appealing and delicious. There is no one I can complain to about the hazardous food items they sell. The shop owners pay quite a huge sum of money to carry out their business and keep their shops open. I’m writing to appeal to the concerned authorities, to look into this issue. This is a grave cause for concern.
