PFA pronounced 9000 energy drinks hazardous for human utilization. The nature of energy drinks sold in Pakistan is unsafe for human well being.
Moreover, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) recently raided energy drinks shops in different areas of Lahore announced that immense amount of them are ‘dangerous’ for utilization.
Rafia Haider Director of Operations PFA headed the team. She and her team checked the quality of energy drinks that are sold to the people residing in different areas of Lahore. More than 9000 energy drinks had more caffeine than the set limit. Those drinks were taken by the PFA team and removed from the shops.
Energy drinks manufacturers have been issued a notice to print the drink label in the Urdu language. She affirmed that the health of the citizens should be the utmost priority and no compromise can be made on it.
Also, citizens were asked to co-operate in this matter so that it is ensured that unhygienic and unhealthy food and drinks are not sold in our society. After all the well-being of our society is dependent upon health. If we are selling unhygienic, chemical-filled drinks, it’s not just a crime, we are in short playing with the health and lives of our people.
