New Delhi: Usually, when you go to buy sweets, the shopkeeper tells you Laddu, Barfi and Rasmalai are very fresh. But you always see the sweetness of the dessert fresh with suspicion. Although sweet looks attractive, but the day of its spoilage is never known. Now you do not have to worry about sweets being rancid.
The central government has brought a new law. Strict action will be taken against those who do not follow this rule. Traditional Indian sweets shops will soon be required to write an expiry date for the sweets kept open on their counters. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has given information in this regard in its new notice. FSSAI said that sweet shops will have to give information regarding the date of manufacture and spoilage of open sweets from June 1.
In its order, the Food Safety Authority has said that it has received complaints regarding the sale of stale and expired sweets, which is a 'potential health hazard'. The new law has been implemented to ensure public interest and food security. The authority has said that in the case of unpacked sweets, it will be mandatory from June 1, 2020, to give information about 'manufacturing date' and 'expiry date' in the container/tray containing sweets at the outlet for sale.
