After insects in Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Atta noodles, fungus found in Patanjali’s Desi Ghee

Samples were collected from Haridwar and have been sent for testing.
2015 has not been a good year for Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda. Locals in Haridwar have reported about a the presence of fungus in the bottle of Patanjali’s Cow Milk’s Desi Ghee. Food Safety officials collected the sample on Monday and have sent them to a lab in Rudrapur for further testing.
According to the reports, samples were collected from Bhadrabad Phase II after many people reported the presence of impurities and fungus in the samples and test reports are expected in a fortnight.
It has also been reported that Baba Ramdev’s aide, Balakrishna has completely rejected the allegations stating that the ghee is heated to an optimum temperature and hence the allegation of fungus in a sealed bottle is baseless.
A few months ago, questions were raised about the quality and safety of Patanjali Atta Noodles as the Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) declared that Patanjali had not received an approval from them before launching their atta noodles. Samples have been sent for testing but the reports are still awaited.
After that, a man in Haryana complained that he had found insects in a packet of Patanjali’s Atta noodles. The packet was purchased from some swadeshi store in Narwana and the shopkeeper too had admitted that the packet was purchased from his outlet. The man had then decided to file a litigation against Patanjali. But, like most other news, there’s no information on whether the litigation was actually filed and what Patanjali had to say in this case.
