FLAVOURED TO­BACCO, NICOTINE BANNED

Hindustan Times (Amritsar) - - Htpunjab -

CHANDI­GARH: Pun­jab has banned food prod­ucts con­tain­ing to­bacco or nicotine as in­gre­di­ents, ir­re­spec­tive of the way they are named, for one year. The move has been taken in pur­suance of the Food Safety and Stan­dards Reg­u­la­tions. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion com­mis­sioner KS Pannu said this or­der was is­sued as man­u­fac­tur­ers had been cir­cum­vent­ing the ban on the sale of gutkha, man­u­fac­tur­ers had been sell­ing Paan Masala (with­out to­bacco) and flavoured chew­ing to­bacco in dif­fer­ent sa­chets.
