THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a major crackdown against the sale of adulterated coconut oil in the state, the Commissioner of Food Safety Anand Singh has issued a ban on 70 coconut oils brands after they were found to be adulterated. The ban has come at a time when the market is abuzz with Christmas-New Year celebrations.

With this, the total number of banned coconut oil brands in the year has become 166. Issuing the ban, Anand Singh said the 70 brands were being banned after they were found the manufacturers had violated the provisions contained in the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006. At the same time, Food Safety Officers (FSO) also point out some of the brands which were prohibited at one district were found to be in distribution and sold in another district. 

However, Health Minister K K Shailaja said strict directions were given to the Food Safety Department to increase its intervention in preventing adulterated food items being sold in the market.
