Man uses Toilet Water to prepare foods (Viral Video)

A video of a Mumbai street food vendor is going viral on social media after he was caught using tap water from Borivali Railway Station toilet to prepare food.

In the video, the vendor, who runs an idly stall on the pavement could be seen fetching water from a toilet to prepare the chutney, which is served along with the dish.

As per India Today reports, the 45-second long video, however, does not mention the time or date of the incident. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched an investigation. The FDA has also issued a public warning against using such water, which could be contaminated.

According to media reports, Shailesh Adhav of the FDA branch in Mumbai said "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."

"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 added.

Finally, he stated that the short video needs to be probed further to find out when and where the incident happened. "We have seen the video. We have to check which place the video was shot at," he said.
