Lucknow, June 19: After Maggi noodles, and series of other branded products, now well known soap is under the scanner.
Reportedly, the Dettol soap which is being made by reputed company Reckitt Benckiser (India) Limited has failed laboratory test.
Along with the soap, 10 other medicines have also failed the test and reportedly all these companies will be sent a notice soon.
According to a India Today report, in November last year, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) had collected some samples(medicines, tinctures and Dettol soap ) which were found to be doubtful from Agra. These samples were then sent for a lab test.
In test, it was found that Dettol soap and other 10 medicines
were sub standard.
Recently, two samples of milk produced by Mother Dairy was found to be substandard, and one of them contained detergent.
"The samples were sent to the Lucknow laboratory which declared them substandard. The company challenged the results and demanded the samples be sent to the Kolkata lab, which too found them defective. In fact, the Kolkata lab found one sample contained detergent," Ram Naresh Yadav, chief of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had said.
