He said that the FDA team comprising of officers Brijendra Bharti, Roshni Rajput and Sadhna Chandrakar led by Dr Dewangan carried out action in compliance with a report of the Food Testing Laboratory, Raipur.

“Recently, we had collected samples of Pure Ghee manufactured by Amul from WalMart shop in Raipur and subsequently sent it to the laboratory. Laboratory reports reads that no manufactures have rights to claim that their products are pure on the package/pouches available for sale in the market. It is the violation of provisions in the Food Safety and Standard Act (FSSA),” said Dr Dewangan.
