Directive to test all packaged food items

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, June 14 � The central food safety regulator, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has asked the food commissioners in the states to inspect and evaluate all packaged products available in markets across India in the wake of the Maggi controversy.

�There are hundreds of packaged food products which are being sold in the country without registration; they need to be inspected and evaluated,� a source said.

The directions were given by FSSAI to the state food safety commissioners in a meeting earlier this month.

�It has also been suggested during the meeting that the state food safety commissioners should prepare their line of action for the year and collect samples of all the packaged products, even those which are not registered with FSSAI,� the source added.

The officials were also told to take action if required. FSSAI had also handed over a list of 500 products rejected by it as of April 30, 2015, to the food safety commissioners. � PTI
