Thiruvallur’s, India: Thiruvallur FSO now harasses cold storage unit

Thiruvallur’s food safety officer (FSO) has issued an illegal statutory notice to a cold storage unit on Thiruvallur High Road in Kodavuli, a village in the district. It stated that the owner of the unit has not obtained a licence under the Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA), 2006, despite reminders via mail and text messages.

Claiming that he had paid frequent visits to the cold storage unit and handed over the licence documents to its owner in person, the FSO said every correspondence had gone unheeded and that a number of provisions of the Act were contravened. And for that, he warned the owner of the cold storage unit that he would impose hefty fines and sentence him to imprisonment.

Informing FnB News about the incident via e-mail, P Subash Chandra Bose, vice-president, Tamil Nadu Foodgrains Merchants’ Association (TNFMA), said the FSO threatened to book the owner of the cold storage unit under six Sections of the Act: Sections 55; 56; 58 (under which contraventions carry a liability of Rs 2 lakh); 59; 61 and 62.
