I’m regular consumer of maggie but today this incident upsetted me a lot. I found a plastic rubber band in my cooked maggie. Im not sure if it was dropped in the wax or the masala pack but it literally gav me a shock. Then, i took the band from my vessel and again dropped it in to post it on social media. I confess that i never used any bands while cooking as far to my knowledge. I demand an explanation for this, till then i’m not going to leave it for free.

I had bought a pack of 1litre Patanjali Ghee from Heritage Supermarket. Upon opening it, I can neither smell, nor when u put in the food..it does not give any taste nor ghee smell. It just looks like Dalda mixed with little quantity of ghee. 
I think the food and beverage department should look into these type of Cheap foods stuffs, which can harm our health and for looting the people’s money. 
Strict Punishment to be given to such industries, who serve fake and adulterated food products.
Regards,

If consumer feels it is fake and adulterated it needs testing for confirmation of standards.
Complaint may be filed with Designated Officer (Food Safety) Chennai along with the evidences for initiating regulatory action.

Consumer alert – Pepsico India – Tropicana Orange -Product tasting bad smell – Only one date in label

Food Business Operator : Pepsico India 

Product : Tropicana Orange

Issue : Only one date in label 

Consumer complaint as posted by Falmervenu on Jan 4th  -2018 in Indian Consumer Complaints Forum

Dear Sir
Last week we bought your product Tropicana Orange flavour from a shopping mall. There was only one date 03/12/17. We dont know if it is expiry or mfg dt.
The product tasted very bad and smell. Wasting Rs.90/- is one thing. We bought a very bad quality food product which does not show the expiry date explicitly is very disappointing. 
These are another classic example how people in India are taken for a ride.
Thanks and we will never every buy your products.
