Uttar Pradesh’s Crackdown on Inauthentic Halal-Certified Products: Sahara Mall Raid Unearths Violations

Published on

In a recent move to uphold the authenticity of Halal certification, the Food Safety and Drug Administration (FSDA) team conducted a thorough examination of Halal-certified products at Sahara Mall in Uttar Pradesh. This initiative is part of the state government’s ongoing efforts to curb the sale of inauthentic Halal-certified items.

During the raid, the FSDA scrutinized a range of Halal-certified products available at the mall, including cold drinks, meat, and dry fruits. As a result of their findings, the FSDA has taken decisive action by registering a case against eight companies implicated in the distribution of questionable products.

This crackdown comes in the wake of a statewide ban imposed by the Uttar Pradesh government on the production, storage, distribution, and sale of food, medicines, and cosmetic items with Halal certification.

The ban, implemented in the interest of public health and to avoid confusion, prohibits the circulation of Halal-certified edible items within the state with immediate effect.

The directive issued by the Uttar Pradesh Food Commissioner emphatically states, “In the interest of public health, production, storing, distribution, and sale of Halal-certified edible items are banned in Uttar Pradesh with immediate effect.”

The government has also issued a stern warning of severe consequences for those found violating the ban. Notably, goods with Halal certification intended for export are exempt from this prohibition.

This crackdown underscores the state’s commitment to ensuring the authenticity of Halal-certified items, safeguarding public health, and maintaining transparency in the marketplace.
