Chandigarh, October 6

KS Pannu, Commissioner, Food and Drug Administration, said the food safety team had seized 900 litres of adulterated desi ghee from a food business operator in Mansa.

The manufacturer was allegedly involved in mixing cooking medium/ vanaspati into ghee and was selling it as desi ghee of various brands. The team discovered 13 boxes of Madhu Sagar Desi Ghee (222 litres), 35 boxes of Keshav Ghee (550 litres) along with 12 boxes of Dairy King cooking medium (125 litres).

The cooking medium used for blending was a Haryana-made product, said Pannu and added that it was being looked into as to why the cooking medium was procured from the neighbouring state.

Meanwhile, the food safety team took the samples of ghee and cooking medium and sent it for analysis to the state lab and sealed the premises of the operator.
