No formal intimation about milk adulteration: Govt

first_imgNew Delhi, May 10 (PTI) No formal intimation has been received regarding adulteration of any major brand of packaged milk in the recent past, Government today told the Rajya Sabha even as it listed out a number of measures to check the sale of spurious milk across the country. “The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has informed that it has not received any formal intimation regarding adulteration of any major brand of packaged milk in recent past,” Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Shripad Yesso Naik said. He was responding to a question whether recently some top brands of packaged milk have been found to be adulterated and steps being taken by the government to check packaged milk adulteration. Naik said the government has launched a pilot project in three states to check spurious milk by providing them an advanced machine, which can check 90 to 100 samples per hour. “This machine has so far been given only to three states (Delhi, UP and Chandigarh) on pilot basis. If it gives good result, we will consider to give it to all states,” the minister said. He was apparently referring to the Advanced Electronic Milk Adulteration Tester (EMAT), which can test fat, protein content, SNF (solid not fat), water content, presence of glucose and electrodes in milk. “Under the Food Safety Standards Act, 2006, the responsibility of FSSAI mainly concerns laying down science-based standards for articles of food and to regulate their manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import to ensure availablity of safe and wholesome food for human consumption. “The implementation of enforcement of Food Safety and Standards (FSS) Act, 2006 and regulations thereunder primarily rests with the state and union territory governments,” he said.
