Expired litchi drink seized in Bongaigaon

By Correspondent

Bongaigaon, April 1 � Bongaigaon police seized 50 boxes of expired �litchi drink� bottles from a shop at Paglasthan here this noon after being informed by a section of the local media.

Dipak Rabidas, owner of the shop �Accuracy Maintainer�, told the media that he bought 50 boxes containing 3600 bottles of 180 ml each of the drink from Guwahati-based distributor TFB, India. But when some mediamen pointed out him the manufacturing date of the drink, the lapse was noticed.

Soon after Deepak informed the matter to the distributor, the complaint was passed on to the manufacturer Modern Food Industries, Batarhat, Kamrup. The manufacturer tried to convince Deepak that the product is genuine but the label on the bottle is of last year (2011). So, he can sell the product without any tension. The same person replying the queries of the media told that he used the old label as new labels were not available in time. Besides, he further siad that in this way, already huge volume of products have been sold in the markets of the States.

The locals blamed the Food Inspector for encouraging the corrupt traders to sell products which are unfit for human consumption openly in the market. It is to be noted that on the label of the drink, it was written �contains no fruit�. It means the litchi drink has been made of chemical mixtures which are not named on its label. The person who talked over phone on behalf of the manufacturer confirmed that as sweetener, instead of sugar, certain chemicals are used in the product, but on the label, sugar was mentioned as one its compositions.
