Informing about the complaint, Haridwar District Magistrate Sachin Kurve on Wednesday, Sept 26 said irregularities have been found in labelling of six products and such violations have been termed as "misleading" and "misbranding".
Salt, mustard oil, honey, black pepper, pineapple jam and Arogya Besan were the six sample food products which were under the hawk eyes of Rudrapur-based Food and Drug Testing Laboratory from where the complaint surfaced.
"It states that the product is manufactured elsewhere while claims of purity have been made by brand Patanjali, which becomes misleading," said the district magistrate.
Following the complaint, a legal notice has been sent to Ramdev's trust which has denied all allegations hurled against its labelling of food products. However, there were no comments on the qualities of food in the complaint.
Clarifying their stand on the entire controversy, SK Patra, the President of Patanjali Ayurved Ltd, asserted, "No company manufactures salt. It is made on the sea shore. All companies buy it and then brand it."
