Food samples fail quality test in Patiala

Tribune News Service

Patiala, February 8

Around eight food samples, collected by the Health Department last month, have failed to meet quality standards. Of the eight samples, three were declared ‘sub-standard’ by the state food testing lab and five were found ‘misbranded’.

Glucose was found in one milk sample collected from Kularan village in Samana block.

A milk sample of Singla Milk Chilling Centre in Devigarh was found substandard as it had low fat and high moisture content. Five food samples, which were misbranded, include ‘rewari’, ‘ajwain’, ‘desi ghee’ (two) and ‘paneer’.
