For Governments, Manufacturers and Retailers Keeping in view the high level of adulteration in all types of loose edible oils, their sale should be banned across the country. At the same time, for consumers who cannot afford to buy bulk packs, edible oils can be made available in small packs of 100 ml/200 ml/500 ml capacity. For Consumers Always buy packaged items to be safe and to avoid adulteration. Label declaration on packed food is very important for knowing the ingredients and nutritional value. It also helps in checking the freshness of the food and the ‘best before’ period. Selection of wholesome and non-adulterated food is essential to make sure that the foods one consumes do not cause any health hazard. While it is not possible to ensure wholesome food only on visual examination since toxic contaminants can be present at ppm/ppb level, visual examination of the food before purchase can be a first level of check against presence of insects, visual fungus, foreign matters, etc. Therefore, due care taken by the consumer at the time of purchase can be of great help. Last and by no means the least, the consumer should avoid taking food from an unhygienic place and food being prepared under unhygienic conditions. Such types of food may cause various diseases. It is always better to buy certified food from a reputed shop.
