Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has appealed to the people to buy sweets carefully during festive season.
In view of high demand for sweets and other items, possibility of adulteration becomes high. The buyers should ensure date of manufacturing, packing and expiry (Best before). Mentioning â€˜Best before xxx dateâ€™ is mandatory for all the containers. Besides sweets, oils, ghee etc should also be purchased from recognised shops. The FDA has also appealed to retain bills relating to their purchases.
So far as possible these goods should be consumed within 24 hours. If storage is necessary, they should be stored at proper temperature. The milk and milk products should be consumed within eight to ten hours, FDA has stated.
If any kind of adulteration is observed or experienced toll-free number 1800222365 or FDA office 0712-2666120, may be contacted, informs Joint Commissioner of FDA Jayant Wane.
