June 28, 2022 | BK News Service


Srinagar, June 28: The Legal Metrology Srinagar today sealed a Warehouse of a prominent wholesaler at Karan Nagar, Srinagar for selling non-standard packaged sweets and confectionery items meant for children.
Acting on a complaint alleging that a wholesaler in Karan Nagar was selling packaged food items in contravention of Legal Metrology norms, the team of Legal Metrology Officers inspected the premises.
During the comprehensive inspection, it was revealed that a huge quantity of products consisting mainly of sweets and confectionery items meant for kids were in contravention of Legal Metrology norms. The products were accordingly seized on spot after following the due procedure as provided under the Legal Metrology Act, 2009.
It was observed that such products were apparently transported to rural areas and far flung districts for marketing in order to escape from the eyes of enforcement agencies.
It is worth mentioning here that markets have witnessed huge growth in the children oriented products like lollipops, chocolates, toffees, juices, ice creams, etc which are without the mandatory declarations like Manufacturing address, date of packing, Customer care details etc thereby casting a doubt over the genuineness of such products and putting the health of the consumers including children to huge risk.
Meanwhile, the parents are advised to refrain from giving such food items to their children that are without Customer Care details, Complete Manufacturers address, MRP, Net Quantity, Name of importer etc. and in case of complaints they should contact the Legal Metrology Department.
Moreover, it was informed that in the coming days more inspection drives towards such products and premises will continue unabated in other districts as well.
