FSSAI Initiates Investigation into MDH and Everest Spices

The Indian food safety regulator has initiated an investigation into MDH and Everest spices after receiving concerns from Rajasthan, a report said on June 14.

According to a report by CNBC-TV18, Indian firms may face penalties from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India for selling “unsafe spices”.

The decision was made following a report by five states – Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Goa, and Telangana – in which the State Food and Safety departments consider various spices sold by MDH, Everest, and local brands as “unsafe” for consumption.

According to sources, CNBC-TV18 has learned that FSSAI has quickly responded to a report from the Rajasthan Food Safety Department. The report indicates that MDH and Everest, two spice brands, were found to have raised levels of pesticide and insecticide during state testing.

In light of the widespread popularity of these spice brands, the FSSAI has taken prompt action to address the potential threat.
