A team of Punjab Food and Drug administration has claimed to have found food and other items of substandard quality and which were packaged in such a fashion so that they look similar to the famous brands.
In a raid conducted at a factory premises in Punjab's Mansa district yesterday night, an inspecting team found products like 'ghee' (clarified butter) was being prepared and it was being packaged similar to brands like Verka, Amul and Milkfood, an official spokesman said. The ghee was produced with the use of vegetable fat mixture, spokesman said.
About 700 printed packets of 'Tata Tea Gold' with low quality tea were also found. Entire stock including wrappers and packets was seized, spokesman said. In another case, the team found a firm which was labeling the rice bran oil as pure mustard oil in Sangrur, spokesman said.
Notably, the Punjab Food and Drug administration had launched a campaign to check manufacturing of adulterated and substandard quality food products.
