Poor quality Patanjali food products: Court fines & sends 3 to jail

New Delhi: Following the failure of quality tests by Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Soan papdi, a Uttarakhand court-imposed fines and sent three people to jail for six months. Those jailed included an assistant manager of Patanjali Ayurved Limited, The Wire reported, citing a Live Hindustan report.

Those jailed were identified as businessman Leeladhar Pathak, distributor Ajay Joshi and Patanjali assistant manager Abhishek Kumar, and they have cases filed against their names. The Chief Judicial Magistrate of Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand, fined Rs 5,000, Rs 10,000 and Rs 25,000, respectively, under Section 59 of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.

In October 2019, samples of Patanjali Navratna Cardamom Soan Papdi were collected from a shop in the main market of Berinag, Pithoragarh, by a food inspector after quality complaints. The samples were later tested at the Food and Drug Testing Laboratory in Rudrapur, Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand. The quality tests returned that the samples were of poor quality and failed the tests.

It was only recently that the Supreme Court chided Patanjali founders Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna over the company’s misleading advertisements over its products.
