It is essential to ensure that food, if found unsafe as per provisions of the FSS Act, 2006, has to be prohibited for sale / recalled from the food supply chain to protect consumers.

In this regard, if the enforcement samples opined unsafe in the primary lab report, you are requested to direct the Designated Officers (DOs) / Central Licensing Authorities (CLAs) under your respective jurisdiction to take following action immediately:

  1. Prohibit Sale of Unsafe Food: If the food sample lifted by CFSO/FSO is found unsafe in the report of Primary Food Laboratory according to the provisions of theFSS Act, 2006, the DO/CLA shall exercise the power under Section 36(3)(b) of the FSS Act, 2006, to direct FBOs to prohibit the sale of unsafe food products read with Section 18(1)(g) of the FSS Act, 2006.
  2. Recall Unsafe Food: After implementing prohibition of sale, the food is to be recalled in the following cases:
  • If the FBO prefers an appeal against the report of Primary Lab as per the provisions of Section 46(4) of the FSS Act, 2006, and the report of the Food Analyst of the Referral Laboratory declares the food unsafe.
  • If the FBO does not prefer an appeal as per Section 46(4) of the FSS Act,2006 within the stipulated time period.

DO/CLA should recommend to the Chief Executive Officer, FSSAI, or the Commissioner of Food Safety of the State /UT, as per jurisdiction, to exercise the powers vested under Regulation 5(3) of the Food Safety & Standards (Food Recall Procedure) Regulations, 2017, to direct the FBO to immediately recall the implicated food products read with Section 18(1)(g) of the FSS Act, 2006, along with all the measures as enjoined upon the FBO under the Food Safety & Standards (Food Recall Procedure) Regulations, 2017.
