After FSSAI said Patanjali Atta Noodles launched by Ramdev have no approval, it is back in trouble again. This time, worms were found in a packet in Narwana city of Jind district in Haryana.
India Today reported that one Vinod Kumar bought the Patanjali atta noodles packet containing worms from an authorized shop selling Patanjali products which was situated in Model Town road area of Narwana on Thursday. He said,
I had gone to purchase half kg of ghee from the shop. However, I bought a packet of atta noodles apart from desi ghee and biscuits as I thought the noodles were healthy. When I cooked the noodles the next day, I found dead worms. When I looked inside the packet which still had some noodles left, there were some worms inside as well. I immediately reached the Patanjali outlet to register my complaint about the packet.
When contacted, the shop owner confirmed that he received a complaint about worms being found in a Patanjali atta noodles packet. The shop owner said,
As soon as I learnt about worms being found inside a packet, I stopped selling noodles and informed the wholesaler about it. Being a retail shop owner, I can hardly do anything about worms being found inside a packet.
Let’s just hope things get clarified soon.
