These samples were sent to the Food and Drugs Laboratory, Nizampura, Vadodara,” informed A N Panchal, food safety officer, food department, Rajkot Municipal Corporation.
“The inspection results should arrive in 40 days as per the Food Safety and Standards (FSS) Act in practice. As and when the inspections will occur, the products will be sent to the Vadodara lab in this winter season,” stated Panchal, explaining the winter inspection drive.
The food department will be on an inspection regime of ghee and edible oils in the coming days.
