As much as this event was greatly organized , we watch one week later , an attack on Lebanese Restaurants on Marcel Ghanem's TV show ( LBCI group), Kalam el Nas. The reports on this program showed how horrific and disgusting it is to eat outside our houses in Lebanon.
An outrage by the Lebanese people was initiated demanding that a list of all the " unsafe" restaurants be made due to the increasing food poisoning cases.
It is true that most of these restaurants may not part of the syndicate, but the syndicate has to issue a press release in this matter.
That is because other restaurants respect their customers's health and abide by the food safety regualtions and thus having an outrage like this will affect them even though they have no hand in it.
Nevertheless, the syndicate has to be more strict when it comes to food regulations and push the government to issue a law that forces any restaurant in Lebanon to abide by the Food Safety regulations , at least the general practices ( GMP's) and compels them in obtaining a certificate in HACCP .
If a good quality system is implied in this country and in every restaurant and factory, not only we would be reducing food poisoning cases, but we would be also benefiting every restaurant by avoiding any unnecessary rumor that would affect it financially.
A change has to be made.
