Food safety department bans use of newspaper for wrapping food items

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Food safety department has come up with an order that will make all wayside eateries change the way they serve food. In a latest order, Food safety commissioner Navjot Khosa has imposed a one-year ban on using newspapers and other printed material for wrapping, packing and serving of food.

The Food safety and standard authority had in December last year issued an advisory to food safety commissioners in all states to restrict use of newspaper as food packaging material. The advisory was issued after conducting a risk analysis study.

The Food safety department has invoked section 18 (1)(a), section 26(2)(i), section 29(3), section 30(2)(d) and section 30(1) of the food safety and standards act to impose a ban on use of newspapers or other printed materials for storage, distribution or sale of food.
