FSSAI rapped by CAG

After CAG pulled up Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) for recklessly issuing licenses to food companies without complete documents and questioned the quality of testing, the food regulator said that it faces severe manpower constraints and “is a new and evolving organisation”.

It also assures citizens that they can trust the food they get. “CAG report should however be seen in the context of the huge and complex task at hand and the fact that FSSAI is a new and evolving organisation and it faces severe constraints of manpower and resources. It would have been useful if the report had noted a lot of very useful work done by the FSSAI over years,” said FSSAI in a statement defending itself.
