Fifteen teams of food safety officials scooped on Kedareswarapeta fruit market in Vijayawada and conducted raids. On cue that fruits ripened with calcium carbide were being sold here, the officials raided the market and checked many fruits. They went in the storage room and found calcium carbide packets. The furious officials threatened to book the fruit sellers, as there were HC orders against selling fruits ripened with calcium carbide. They seized the packets. Criminals cases might be booked against the culprits even as the fruits might be discarded.
