FSSAI issues direction on labelling of oil; seeks action against violators

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued a direction to food safety departments of all the states for ensuring compliance with respect to the provisions of labelling of Multi Sourced Edible Oil (MSEO).

The FSSAI has stated in its order that the provision should be checked and verified for compliance and an action taken report should be submitted to the food authority in this regard. The order added that action must be initiated against the violators.

“It is requested to check and verify compliance of labels of all such oil products/manufacturers under your jurisdiction and in case of any violations with respect to labelling such as name of the oil or deceptive labels creating erroneous impression regarding nature of the product, FBOs may be immediately issued notices under intimation to FSSAI HQ,” reads the order.

The order added, “An Action Taken Report in the matter shall also be provided to FSSAI HQ by 1st June 2022, positively.”

According to the FSSAI, as per the FSS (Prohibition & Restriction on Sales) Regulations Multi Sourced Edible Vegetable Oil shall not be sold under common or generic name of the oil used in the blend but shall be sold as Multi Sourced Edible Vegetable Oil.

“Also FSS (Labelling and Display) Regulations 2020 stipulate that ‘every package containing an admixture of edible oil shall carry declaration immediately below the brand name/trade name on front of the pack regarding the name and nature of each vegetable oil used in its preparation and their percentage by weight’,” added the FSSAI statement.
