The Consumer Affairs Authority has said that steps are being taken to bust a racket wherein dyed rice is being supplied to the market.

The authority added that the raids were conducted based on several complaints lodged by the general public.

Accordingly, 50,000 kilograms of dyed rice had been discovered in seven rice mills in the districts of Polonnaruwa and Batticaloa. Samples of the rice were sent to the government analyst for testing.

The CAA noted that raids will continue in order to apprehend the suspects.
