Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has finally proved that their food did not cause food poisoning on Tejas Express.

On October 15, when the train was on the way to Mumbai from Karmali, 26 passengers in the state-of-the-art 'Tejas Express' suffered from nausea and vomiting.

The train had to then halt at Chiplun, Maharashtra and passengers were admitted to a hospital.

Reports of food samples submitted by the Railways have come from the laboratory and there is no trace of the food being contaminated.

Earlier, it was assumed that the food provided by the IRCTC contractor was the root cause of food poisoning but later on it was revealed that some passengers had vomited inside the train and vitiated the air quality which triggered uneasiness.

IRCTC took samples of soup powder, poha, cake, breadsticks, kokum sherbet and mango punch served during the breakfast for quality control.
