FDA Seizes Dairy Products

13 January 2020

INDIA - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently carried out a special inspection drive and seized dairy products worth Rs 69 lakh for violating norms.

According to the Intelligence Branch of FDA, Mumbai's local area officers raided cold storages located at various places and found Nutralite Fat Spread product of Zydus Wellness Pvt. Ltd and products belonging to Gujarat Co. Op Milk Federation i.e. Amul Lite and Delicious from Goregaon, Panvel, Nashik and Aurangabad.

The officials also mentioned that labels on these products endorse false claims like “zero cholesterol” “low fat, low cholesterol” which do not match the standards given in the Schedule I (Nutritional Claims) of Advertising & Claims Regulations 2018 of FSS Act, 2006. To mention such type of claims, the product should be free from cholesterol and saturated fatty acid level should be restricted to l.5gm/100gm of products.

(69 lakh = US $97388.88)
