'No cause of alarm' about milk adulteration: FSSAI

The food regulator collected 6,000 samples for testing the quality of milk.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has stated that there is no cause of alarm about the quality of milk in India, citing initial findings of its nationwide survey.

The food regulator collected 6,000 samples for testing the quality of milk. It would soon release the initial survey report.

Pawan Kumar Agarwal, CEO of FSSAI, said, "There is no alarming situation. The 2011 survey showed 68 per cent of samples as sub-standard. But sub-standard does not mean that milk is unsafe. Only 14-15 per cent of samples were unsafe."

"In the new survey, we are not only testing samples on qualitative norms but also and quantitative parameters. Besides we are going to check residues from pesticides and fodders. We will soon release the initial report of this survey. But I want to say there is no cause of alarm," Agarwal added.
