Trichy: After banning the use of carbide stones in artificially ripening mangoes, the food safety and drug administration department is now focussing on using ethylene powder to ripen the fruit.
The district administration has warned eateries, tea shops and shops selling food items not to pack food items or snacks in printed materials including newspapers and plastic covers.
The civic body has decided to act tough against vendors selling such unhygienic drinks which may cause water-borne diseases among consumers.
When it comes to following a healthy diet, smoking is considered to be one of the biggest evils risking our health.
Use of newspapers, recycled papers, and plastic sheets to wrap food directly has been banned by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
The FSSAI has drafted new regulations called the Food Safety and Standards (Foods for Infant Nutrition) Regulations, 2019.
