ISLAMABAD – The substandard food cafeterias and stall in hospitals of capitals are functioning unnoticed, taking a heavy toll on health of visitors while authorities concerned are not even considering it to resolve this issue. The food being sold in these canteens and out side stalls of hospitals is too shoddy and substandard, and is causing many health problems. It was learnt that all such public places in the city are offering substandard food due to no checking by the responsible authorities. Due to lack of any food inspection system in the capital, people are suffering from food poisoning and other related diseases.
The patients of food poisoning mostly belong to surrounding areas of Islamabad. Due to lack of health facilities in these areas, they have to visit hospitals in Islamabad for treatment.
