Mohali, September 17

To enforce nutraceutical and health supplement regulations by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, a joint surprise inspection was conducted at wholesalers, retailers and manufacturing units in Mohali, Kharar and Kurali today. A total of 10,000 tablets of “CanDZ”, which were found to be non-compliant with the FSSAI regulations, were seized.

The inspection team comprised of Joint Director and Central Licensing Authority of the FSSAI BS Acharya, Mohali District Health Officer Dr Subhash Kumar and Food Safety Officer Ravinandan Goyal.

Acharya said tablet Demci-500 was also ordered to be recalled by the manufacturer after it was found to be non-compliant with the norms. A search for Demci-500 was carried out in several parts of the region. One manufacturing unit in Kurali was also visited and a notice was issued to it for not adhering to all health supplement regulations of the FSSAI Act. — TNS
