Stale food items

I am experiencing stale food issues in recent past, which were samosa, kachori, tikki chat and even sweets (nariyal barfi). Now the point is that these were not purchased from local street vendors but good mid size sweet shops, who also displays their FSSAI license. Problem is when we complaint at shop, they do not accept the fact, other is that sweet reaches our relative and sometimes they do not tell us in time.

I want to teach these type of vendors a lesson who are playing with public health.

Share some inputs please. more

Particlarly dish made out of Narial , make sure that you taste a piece first before payng for it . If sweets made in coconut in large scale , he manufactureer always has a tendency to add the spoilt ones too . On tasting , particularly Narial even the presence of a small percentage will indicate if stale or spolt .
Some business men dont have the honesty and stealthily add that 2 or 3 spoilt coconuts to save some money .
Do the duty of complaining , but never lookup that shop again . more  
I've always admired people who can distinguish these micro-differences, as illustrated by dear Ashish Jain. Our older son is one of them.

Personally, I'm happy to have a samosa or a wada in my mouth irrespective of their age..... more  
Ask your local Bhajiwala where they supply the left over. These restaurants pay handsome for such bhaji which we dont buy for home use. Nicely trimmed, cut, ready to use, look good but very unhygienic, end up as gourmet meal. Win-win for everyone except the consumer. Best is to avoid. more  
There are two ways to fight with such kind of cheating. First collect two items in packed and seal condition with receipt and open one if it is not as per expectation send the item in the laboratory of Foods and drugs department. Second one is register a complaint to FSSAI with the receipt and product. Third is Gandhigiri, be present at the entrance of the shop and convey your message to customers. more  
The very first important thing is to ensure that the Sweets Shop gives you a printed receipt for whatever you have bought. The next thing is to preserve the Receipt until you have at least begun eating the item/s purchased by you. If possible, please keep the outer package/ wrapping also until you have started eating the item.
With the above, it is quite possible that the "Mithai Shop" would accept their error.
If they do not accept then the next step should be to report the matter to the FSSAI and see if some action gets taken. more
