The FSSAI has asked all Commissioners of Food Safety, all its Central Licensing Authorities and all Regional Directors to carry out special enforcement drive to check the quality/safety of the nutraceuticals/health supplements products being sold in the market.

The FSSAI order came after it received complaints about many such products not complying with the prescribed norms under FSS Act.

The order read, “It has brought to the notice of FSSAI that various nutraceutical/health supplement products being sold in the markets are not compliant with the provisions of Food Safety and Standards (Health Supplements, Nutraceuticals, Food for Special Dietary Use, Food for Special Medical Purpose, and Prebiotic and Probiotic Food) Regulations, 2022, apart from being marketed with false/misleading and exaggerated health/label claims in contravention with the provisions of FSS (Advertisement & Claims) Regulations, 2018."

The order added that accordingly, “It is requested to ensure a tight vigil on the manufacturing and sale of the nutraceutical/health supplement products in your respective jurisdictions and carry out a special enforcement drive for the said products to check compliance with the FSSRs and take strict action against any incidence of violation of the same by the FBOs.”

FSSAI has also asked for an ‘action taken report’ on the subject.
