The Matara District Office of the Central Environmental Authority (CEA), along with the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) and Special Task Force (STF), conducted a raid recently in the Akuressa town and seized 480 kilogrammes of lunch sheets which had been manufactured illegally.
These illegally manufactured lunch sheets were found in three different shops and their value was put down Rs 170,000.
CEA Media Officer, Sriyanjani Lokuliyana, said even though lunch sheet manufacturing was banned by a Gazette in Sri Lanka, still it is being produced illegally, and these seized lunch sheets were about to be dispatched to the shops by the manufacturers. Legal action will be taken against lawbreakers.
