A large amount of stale and inedible food was found when Indian left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja’s restaurant, ‘Jaddu’s Food Field’ was raided by the food department of Rajkot Municipal Corporation. A total of 212 kilograms of food was found to be of poor quality, according to the Deccan Herald. While some of them did not carry the expiry date, others had fungus on them. Apart from his restaurant two other eateries in the vicinity, one of which was a McDonald’s outlet, was found guilty of lapses. The restaurants have all been reportedly served notices.
“Yes we had some quantity of boiled and cooked food. Only a few pieces of bread had gone stale. We used to preserve cooked food, but now we will ensure it is destroyed the same night. Also, we did not have a crusher,” Ravindra Jadeja’s sister, Nainaba, who manages the outlet, is quoted as saying by Hindustan Times, “We could not find it on the market but will make arrangements now. The food colours were meant to be used only for vegetable carvings and not in food.”
A few other reports also suggested that the restaurant had kept food in the freezer for a long period of time which resulted in the food getting stale and becoming unfit for consumption. Jadeja has been excluded from the Indian ODI and T20I squads that are currently playing Australia.
