US FDA rejects Haldiram’s products, says its unfit for consumption

The report stated that the Haldiram\'s products especially their cookies, wafers and biscuits are filthy, putrid or decomposed-otherwise unfit.

Ever since Maggi ban has hit the Indian market, other food products including Haldiram’s snacks, HUL’s Knorr noodles, Britannia’s snack products amongst others are facing the food safety haul not only in India but abroad.

United States food safety inspector has banned or rejected over 2100 Indian-made food products including food products, health supplements and personal care products reported WSJ.

According to the US FDA’s website, they found pesticides and bacteria in high levels in the products manufactured in India.

The report stated that the Haldiram's products especially their cookies, wafers and biscuits are 'filthy, putrid or decomposed-otherwise unfit'.

The report also mentioned that the baked products are unfit for consumption and they are adulterated and contains poisonous content.

While, the Nagpur-based snack makers said that their food is completely safe. As reported by Wall Street Journal, a senior Haldiram's official said, “Our food is 100% safe and complies with the law of the land. A pesticide that is permitted in India may not be allowed there. And even if it, they may not allow it in the same concentration as it is here.”

Meanwhile according to US FDA, it was in September 2014 that pesticides were discovered for the first time in Haldiram's. Since then, the US has refused to import their products 86 times.
