Inspectors found many expired and unlabeled products that were unfit for consumption, including 100 kg of urad pulses, 10 kg of curd, and 8 liters of milk, all of which were expired. Additionally, the team discovered 300 kg of unlabeled jaggery. According to multiple reports, the inspection  team also revealed that medical fitness certificates for food handlers were unavailable, and uncovered dustbins posed serious health and safety violations.

In response to the raid, the founders of The Rameshwaram Cafe, Divya Raghavendra Rao and Raghvendra Rao, issued a statement on Twitter, asserting that the chain adheres to the highest quality standards. The cafe is conducting an internal inquiry to verify the facts and review the stock at each outlet.
