Punjab Food Authority declares various cooking oil, ghee brands unfit for consumption

During a crackdown against substandard cooking oils, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) has declared various of the brands unsafe and unfit for consumption.

According to a public notice issued by the authority, the brands were declared unfit because of the absence of Vitamin A and rancidity, artificial flavour addition and other acid values.

“It is informed to the public that recently Punjab Food Authority conducted a survey and took samples of cooking oil and ghee for testing purpose and as a result of lab reports, the following products were found substandard due to absence of Vitamin A and low saponification value”
