A fortnight ago, Navi Mumbai News has aired a report on insects in liquor bottles purchased from this shop. Taking cognizance of our report, the FDA raided the shop. It may be recalled that Navi Mumbai News had aired a report that one customer had purchased a bottle of liquor of the U B Group Ltd. and found insect floating inside the sealed bottle, not once but twice. A complaint was then registered at the Thane FDA dept. The department’s Asst. Commissioner S K Shere raided Pritesh Beer Bar at Belapur along with a team of his officials. While several bottles of liquor were checked, the officials sealed a few bottles. The department will take a decision on the action to be taken in the case in a few days. However, with little check by the FDA in the Navi Mumbai markets and NMMC too not having their own food inspectors, makes Navi Mumbai a vulnerable market to such sub standard and low quality items. Only time will tell whether this case open the eyes of the authorities or not.
