The inspection occurred at Blinkit warehouse at Devar Yamjal, Medchal Malkajgiri District on 5 June 2024. The organization posted on 7 June 2024 on X.

The posts mention that the racks were dusty and unhygienic. There was no Fostac trainee. Headgear, gloves, and aprons were missing. The food handlers did not have their medical fitness certificates. Cosmetics and food products were kept together. The workers not wearing proper gloves and aprons can lead to the spread of several contagious infections and diseases.

The picture shows the boxes of grocery items spread out. Blinkit Warehouse conditions reveal a lot about what we see and what the reality is. The organization will take action soon after the investigation. Till that period, the toor dal and ragi flour are seized from further selling. The seized products have a value of Rs. 52,000. After the incident went viral, everyone was curious to know more about the company’s response. Blinkit replied that safety is the most important aspect for them. They prefer to work closely with the safety and hygiene needs of the consumers. However, the media and the people don’t agree with it after the release of the pictures.
