Gurgaon: A complaint was lodged against Amul for the low quality of milk being sold by them after which the company came on the radar of Health Department.
A raid was conducted at the Amul shop in question on Wednesday and at least 10 milk samples were collected by the officials. The samples have been sent to the lab located in Chandigarh for testing after which further probe will be conducted.
A resident of Sector 40 in Gurgaon, Pooja Walia also registered a complaint against Amul with the Civil Surgeon claiming that the milk was adulterated. She further complained to the shopkeeper that the milk was rancid.
The Civil Surgeon, Dr. Ramesh Ghankhad took prompt action in the issue and informed the Food Safety Officer Dr. EN Sharma about it who further investigated the matter. He went to the shop and took 10 milk samples after the complaint of the woman.
Since there is no Food Safety Officer in the district, a Rewari official has being appointed to further probe the matter. Following the unavailability of an officer even routine inquiries in context with perishable consumable items being sold in the district have to suffer.
Meanwhile, people involved in adulterating the consumable items take advantage of the situation and do not even test the samples.
