Dur­ing the raid at the out­let in Westend Mall on Ferozepur Road, health of­fi­cials col­lected sam­ples of raw and pre­pared eat­a­bles. The team also found rot­ten veg­eta­bles at the eatery.

Dr Kul­winder Singh, dis­trict health of­fi­cer, and food safety of­fi­cers Harpreet Kaur and Manoj Khosla, con­ducted the raid. Khosla said two sam­ples of burg­ers, non-veg­e­tar­ian and veg­e­tar­ian, were taken as sam­ples and sent for test­ing.

He said re­port would come within 13 days.

He said when they in­spected the kitchen, they found some rot­ten veg­eta­bles, which were de­stroyed on the spot.
