Star Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja faced a set-back of sorts on Fiday when the health department of Rajkot Municipal Corporation found inedible food items in his restaurant ‘Jaddu’s Food Field’.
According to reports, the stale foods were destroyed by the authorities and eateries have subsequently been served notice of four days to get their act together. Jaddu’s restaurant in Rajkot was one of the three raided by the food department of the city’s municipal corporation.
According to Ahmedabad Mirror, the items at Jaddu’s Food Field – boiled food preserved for long period, breads with fungus, food colour, items without mention of the expiry date and stale vegetables – were destroyed.
Jadeja’s sister Naina takes care of the restaurant.
“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. We could not find it in the market, but will make arrangements now. The food colours were meant to be used only for vegetable carvings and not in food,” Naina, Jadeja’s sister who takes care of the restaurant, was quoted as saying.
Jadeja is currently out of national team even as Virat Kohli & Co take on Australia in the limited-overs’ series. India have won the five-match ODI series 4-1.The three-match T20I series starts on Saturday in Ranchi.
Jadeja last played for India in a Test match against Sri Lanka at Colombo in August.
