837 adulteration cases in 4 months

Chandigarh, October 10

Implementing the Tandarust Punjab Mission in letter and spirit, food safety teams are conducting intensive inspections of food items, said KS Pannu, mission director.

Updating the inspection status, Pannu said between June and September, as many as 3,548 food samples were collected and analysed. The samples include those of milk, cheese, ghee, khoya, sweets, namkeen, fruits and wine among others.

He said only 719 samples, which formed 20 per cent of the total, were found substandard, but safe to be consumed, while 31 samples (less than 1 per cent) had been found unsafe for human consumption.

Going by the book, cases have been filed against the adulterators in various courts and fine worth Rs 1.48 crore had been imposed in 837 cases and five convictions were ordered against spurious, unsafe, misleading product sellers in the past four months, he added. — TNS
