The PFA also registered a case against the owners of the godown over the violations of the PFA laws. The food safety team under the supervision of PFA Director General Irfan Memon raided Yameen and Din Muhammad godowns in the vicinity of Dena Nath Phool Nagar and foiled an attempt to supply the stock of expired noodles, spices and chocolates.
