Over 12k food samples found adulterated, misbranded in 2014-15: Govt

Taking action in the matter, the authority lodged 1,989 criminal and 7,241 civil cases, Union Health Minister J P Nadda said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.

2,077 samples were found adulterated and misbranded out of the 60,548 samples analysed by food safety watchdog FSSAI in all states and union territories in 2014-15, the government told PTI today.

Taking action in the matter, the authority lodged 1,989 criminal and 7,241 civil cases, Union Health Minister J P Nadda said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.

On the recent controversy over the detection of excess content of lead and MSG (monosodium-glutamate) in popular snack Maggi noodles, the minister said, "The FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) has issued an order directing M/S Nestle India Limited to withdraw and recall their products from the market."

"A show cause notice has been issued to the company giving 15 days' time as to why product approvals granted in respect of nine variants of Maggie Noodles should not be withdrawn," he added.

"The FSSAI has ordered recall of the food products and/or withdrawn the provisional 'No Objection Certificates' issued in respect of various food products manufactured by multi-national companies who violated the provisions of the FSS Act or Regulations. Some of the food products are Maggi instant noodles, Monster energy drink, Cloud 9 energy drink, Tzinga Energy drink and Akoaroma flavoured water," he said.
