Food commissioners asked to test packaged items

maggi-chickenCentral food safety regulator FSSAI has asked state food commissioners to test all packaged products available in markets across the country in the wake of Maggi controversy.

The directions were given by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) to the state food safety commissioners in a meeting earlier this month.

It has also been suggested during the meeting that the state food safety commissioners should prepare their line of action for the year and collect samples of all the packaged products, even those which are not registered with FSSAI.

Earlier this month, the FSSAI had banned Nestle’s Maggi saying it was unsafe and hazardous after tests found presence of lead and Mono sodium glutamate above permissible limits.
