  • 40% Of Seized Milk And Milk Products Are Of Substandard Quality In Punjab
About 40 per cent of milk and milk product samples, which were seized during raids conducted by food safety officials in the last one month, were found to be of substandard quality, a senior official said on Thursday.
 
 
“About 40 per cent of the samples failed the food safety test,” said Punjab Food and Drug Administration Commissioner KS Pannu in a press statement here.
 
 
To check adulteration of milk and milk products, the food safety teams had conducted raids at dairy shops across the state in the last one month. A large quantity of adulterated milk and other items were seized during the raids.
 
 
In the state, Pannu asked traders to follow Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) guidelines to ensure quality and nutritious standard.
 
 
Meanwhile, Punjab Health Minister Brahm Mohindra held a meeting with the milk plant association, here on Thursday.
 
 
Mohindra said shops found adulterating food produce would not be spared.
