UTTAR PRADESH: It seems that the more we start testing things, the more we discover products that are unsafe for human consumption. And yes, that definitely includes few of our most favourites food items. The latest to join the Maggi league are Parle Monaco biscuits in Allahabad and a Domino's pizza outlet in Amroha district, Uttar Pradesh. (Also Read: 8 reasons why you should not eat Maggi)
On July 21, the Food and Drug Authority (FDA) suspended the license of the Domino’s outlet until a further notice is issued to them.
The decision was given after FDA received a complaint and they sent a sample of the tomato sauce for testing to its laboratory in Kolkata. The sample was declared to be unsafe for the human consumption. (Also Read: After Maggi, who is under the scanner? More noodle, pasta and macaroni brands?)
Following the result, the FDA cancelled the license and also banned the sale of any kind of product from the Gajraula outlet until they are given a further notice.
On the other hand, the district administration of Allahabad, after the complaints about the Parle Monaco biscuits has banned the supply of all its products in Allahabad and six other adjoining districts.
More than 800 biscuit packets were seized following a raid by a team of the district administration and the civil supply officials at the Naini based Allahabad super distributor godown of Parle on July 21.
Apart from this, the team also discovered that this distributor possessed license related irregularities and it supplied stock to six other adjacent districts.
Well, we wonder if our country would be left with anything to eat keeping in mind the increasing pace of products being banned. What needs to be noticed here is that all the products that have being banned were actually being manufactured big brands.
We hope our hunger pangs are not left unnoticed and we do get some products in the market that are safe to be consumed.
