Cuttack: A team of the Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) today raided the KFC Restaurant located at Badambadi here over allegation of sub-standard food being served there.
The team has seized some foods prepared by the restaurant while samples of those will be sent to laboratory for test, an official of the CMC said.
Necessary action will be taken on the basis of the report of the test.
Foods at eateries and restaurants are being inspected by concerned officials in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack during the ongoing festive season.

Reacting to this, KFC released an official statement that read: “KFC holds the highest respect for the law of the land and complies with government rules and regulations. The respective teams at our franchise partner’s end extended complete cooperation to the officials.
