Consumer complaint as posted by C.AmrutheshwarRajkumer 0n June 27 in Indian Consumer Complaints Forum
I did contact itc regarding this issue and they put a case number which is: 2017/1203. Few days later, on 27/04/2017 an executive collected the biscuit for the lab test and he also provided me an acknowledgment that he has received it.
My request was just a lab report from itc. Instead they sent me a pdf about the steps they take to filter the raw materials. A few days later they informed me that the foreign material that was found was a raw material. Even then, if they are using the best filtration procedures and machines then why did i still find the raw material in the biscuit.
I spoke to three to four executives and they only wanted me to put an end to this, they never gave me a satisfactory reply.
Suppose if i had not seen the foreign particle, if i had consumed it, i would have fell ill because plastic is a hazardous material.
I did try explaining that i just wanted a lab report and they said they do not get things tested outside and they have there own labs. Well, if that’s the case, let the lab give me a report.
Note: i wanted a biscuit and not the raw material.
I do not want a refund but i want a good justification regarding my issue.
I do have the images, video and the acknowledgement.
