An international restaurant chain has corrected specifications on the labels of the sauce they offer to customers in 29 countries after food inspectors here have found out a violation. The food inspection team of Al Rayyan Municipality recently discovered the violation of the famous restaurant during a regular inspection they conducted at restaurants in the area. Magdi Borhan Zaidan, head of inspection unit at the health monitoring section of Al Rayyan Municipality and Yahya Khalil, food specialist, found the restaurant was refilling the original container of a spicy sauce and putting a label which stated the sauce was valid for only one month. The original sauce must be kept in freezer immediately after opening but they were just placed on the tables. In addition, the specifications of ingredients and the expiry date on the container sold to customers were different from the original ones. During investigation, the director of the restaurant confirmed that their restaurants all over the world were doing the same thing. After the Qatari authorities contacted the headquarters of the company, they conducted their own investigation of the issue and confirmed the violation, after which they changed the specification to mention the way it was supposed to be stored. The company also started to introduce small containers of the sauce valid for 24 hours upon opening. The Peninsula
