This is basically a throwback of the stint when Punjab Food Authority (PFA), Data Ganj Bakhsh under the supervision of Ayesha Mumtaz had cracked down upon the hotels, restaurants, bakeries, food factories, which were and ARE serving you substandard food.
Here are the famous restaurants that were banned in that period,
KFC was banned because of hygiene issues. Aysha Mumtaz Director Operations with Allama Iqbal town team visited KFC Thokar niazbeg Branch. It was sealed because the washroom was directly opening in production area, putrid cabbage was found in cold store, live fly was spotted in burger bun package, and hand sanitizer not available during inspection.
