Parle Biscuits Nashik Plant Raided For Using Banned Ingredients

 Its rare  that we hear stories about  food regulatory bodies  acting against big names in  food processing units  for  violation of   Food Acts .Stringent  action  should be taken against  such  manufacturers  for  putting consumers health at risk . 
Even  as this news  doesn't have any relation to bakery but  for the fact that  manufacturers are  adulterating foods by adding banned ingredients . It is  necessary to  spread awareness among consumers  to be alert on food safety matters .Food laws  are meant  to prevent manufacturers to  play around  with  consumer health  . 
As reports have come from different  news sources  about recent raid in Parle Biscuits Pvt Ltd  Nashik  (Gondegaon) factory  for using lactic acid  in its  confectionery product  " Kaccha Mango Bite " .  The  raid was conducted after  news of  several  kids being admitted for food poisoning  after  eating this  candy broke out  . Lactic acid has been banned to be used in confectionery items . Raid was conducted by officials of FDA .

Lactic acid and raw material have been seized  and sent  for  analysis as reported .
