Ten Percent Food Samples Fail Quality Test in Chandigarh

Ten Percent Food Samples Fail Quality Test in Chandigarh

According to the UT’s reports from last five years, around 10% sample of different food items and sweets products have failed quality tests. The food safety and standards authority of Chandigarh, previously known as Prevention of Food Adulteration Cell, states that most of these products are either adulterated or misbranded. The data was revealed in response to an RTI application from city based RTI activist RK Garg. The reports reveal that out of a total of  851 samples of different 20 items, collected by the states’ food safety administration, 89 failed the quality tests.

Once a product has failed quality test, its case is taken to court by the food safety administration. Depending on the nature of adulteration, they file civil or criminal cases in the court. According to the information provided by food safety administration, in the last three years, the cell pursued 32 criminal and civil cases in local courts against the defaulters. In some cases, it also imposed penalties against the defaulters on the spot for lack of hygiene. Last year the cell collected Rs 1.5 lakh as fine from the defaulters. Three vendors have been barred from selling some particular products by the department.

The campaign against food adulteration usually picks up during the festival season. “Instead of getting hyper active in the festival season, the food safety and standards authority should have a plan for the entire year. The officials must find out that why the conviction is so low in food adulteration cases,” RK Garg, RTI actvist, said.
