Food safety officer of the Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) raided Pyarelal Kachori in the Munshi no Khancho in Mangal Bazaar area on Saturday evening.
After the officer found that the eatery was using newspaper to pack the food item despite a notification from the VMC banning its use, the shop was shut down.
The civic body team also destroyed around 20 kg of food items including ‘kachori puris’, onions, sauces and puffed rice and another 7 kg worth newspaper pasti.
“If the shop owner is ready to maintain the hygiene and sanitation norms and comply by the notification, he will be allowed to open the eatery,” said Vaidya.
Last month too, street vendors and shops selling snacks and savouries packaged in newspapers had to face action after teams of food safety officers had cracked down in Chhani, Nizampura, Sayajigunj, Alkapuri, Manjalpur, Old Padra Road, Karelibaug, Subhanpura and other areas of the city.
