A shocking video has surfaced on social media yet again. Months after lemonade seller was caught using contaminated water for the making of the drink, one more case has gathered the attention.
A video of a Mumbai street food vendor was widely shared on social media which shows him using tap water from Borivali Railway station toilet to prepare the food.
In the video, the hawker is seen fetching water from a toilet to prepare the chutney which is served as an accompaniment with the dish. He runs an idli stall on the pavement of a street.
However, the video does not mention the time and date of the incident. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched a probe into the matter. The FDA also issued a public warning against using such water which could be contaminated.

“The video has come to our knowledge. We will conduct an inquiry against him as well as others, who use such methods to do business. Such water is not healthy for consumption. People may get affected,” said Shailesh Adhav of the FDA branch in Mumbai.
“When the person is caught, his license will be checked and if any sample is found, it will be seized and then necessary action will be taken,” Adhav said.
He also said the short video needs to be probed further to find out when and where the incident happened.
