38,750 substandard water sachets and 203 water cans, 795 packets of artificially flavored fruit juices and buttermilk sachets have been seized by the Chennai Corporation's Public Health Department on Wednesday from around 300 retail outlets in various parts of the Chennai. These packets did not meet the mandatory requirements like printing of address of the manufacturer, batch number, manufacturing date and expiry date.

The civic body undertook this drive after receiving several complaints from people. Health officials have started an awareness drive to educate the masses about the need for precautionary measures in water and food consumption during summer because contaminated water and food could cause acute diarrheal diseases.
