Indore: Following the advisory released by the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) recently to advise people not to use newspapers for wrapping edibles, officials of the Food and Drug Administration department will soon launch a campaign to spread awareness among people about the dangers of having edibles in paper.

The department will soon launch a campaign to make people aware and will also warn shopkeepers who use newspaper for packing edibles.

In the advisory, the FSSAI stated that wrapping food products in newspapers, even if it were manufactured hygienically, is harmful for health as the newspaper ink contains various bioactive materials. Inks also contain harmful colours, pigments, binders, additives and preservatives.
