As per report it was stated that over 100 students of government schools in Ballari and Bagalkot districts and around 25 students of a government primary school in Hagalur village in Ballari fell ill after consuming separate mid-day meals on Thursday. Meanwhile Arun Rangarajan, the Superintendent of Police of Ballari said, several students saw a lizard in the meal, which was reported to the teacher. Furthermore soon after the incident was reported, several children in Classes 2, 3 and 4 began to vomit.
Immediately they were rushed to the local Primary Health Centre where they were treated for food poisoning. Accordingly Karnataka Food Commission had stated that Akshaya Patra's food was bland and monotonous as they did not use onion and garlic in the meals. Reportedly this had led to children not eating the food and the commission had also noted that Akshaya Patra was not providing an adequate quantity of food as prescribed by the Karnataka government.
Earlier on Wednesday, the state food commission had met with representatives of Akshaya Patra in Bengaluru. Krishnamurthy, the Chairman of the Food Commission said "Akshaya Patra representatives said that they would find nutritional replacements for onion and garlic. They denied allegations of the food being bland. The government is testing the food quality and taste in every district. Once the test results are out, we will know how to proceed further".
