Assam Govt Bans Bailley Brand Packaged Drinking Water

Citing the violation of Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, the Assam State Government has banned the manufacture, storage, distribution and sale of Bailley brand packaged drinking water.

The State Government has prohibited the brand on the production of water for next 30 days, with effect from January 18. The move comes after the Government found high fluoride content in some of the samples that were tested by FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Assam.

“In the interest of public health, the packaged drinking water has been banned from production for a period of 30 days, effective January 18,” says an FDA statement.

Udayak Agro Products Pvt. Ltd manufactures Bailley packaged drinking water in Kahilakuchi and Satgaon in Guwahati.

L R Nampui, designated officer, food safety, Kamrup (M), Guwahati, says, “As a part of routine work, food safety officers set out on the duty with their team to M/s Udayak Agro Products Pvt. Ltd in Kahilakuchi, Satgaon in Guwahati and collected the samples of packaged drinking water in which fluoride and microbiological parameters were found in violation of the prescribed norms."
