FSSAI Watch

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has been established under Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA), 2006. This Act not only replaces the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act 1954 but also consolidates the other food acts like the Fruits Product Order (FPO), Meat Food Products Order, Vegetable Oil products (control) Order, the Milk and Milk Products order. These Acts, earlier handled by different ministries, will now fall in the ambit of the FSSAI. The authority is a statutory body with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare being the administrative head.

You will recall, we had way back in 2001 analyzed samples of soil, water and blood from Padre village in Kerala to check for contamination. We went there because local doctors and activists wrote about the horrific diseases and abnomalities in this region. We tested and found high levels of endosulfan pesticide.
