It showed that harmful substances like E Coli and Salmonella (bacteria) were present in KFC (product)," Bala <g data-gr-id="12">Hakkula</g> Sangham (Andhra Pradesh Child Rights Association) president Anuradha Rao said in a media release here. The samples were tested at a Telangana government laboratory, the NGO said on Friday, adding that it had approached the Lokayukta with a request to direct the governments of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to initiate action against the company.
