NEW DELHI: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has taken further action following reports of dangerous levels of sugar in Nestlé Cerelac baby food. FSSAI is likely to call representatives of Nestlé India and seek an explanation.

Company representatives will be appearing before FSSAI's scientific panel. Nestlé India explains that the baby food is manufactured following the norms and regulations. The company may also inform the scientific panel about this. FSSAI will take further steps after hearing the company's explanation. It is also indicated that samples of the baby food have already been collected and sent to the testing lab.

The alarming report was released by Public Eye, a Swiss investigative organization. Yesterday 'Kerala Kaumudi' gave this as a main story.

The Central Consumer Protection Authority and the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights had directed the FSSAI to conduct an investigation. The Ministry of Consumer Affairs also intervened in the matter.
