Ashwani Maindola, New Delhi 
Patanjali Foods Ltd., has filed a clarification to the BSE on recent news in media on ‘Unsafe Patanjali Soan Papdi’.

The matter was related to an order of a court in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand, wherein three people including company's official was sentenced to imprisonment in a case related to violation of FSS Act by the company in production of soan papdi.
The statement issued by Patanjali Foods reads, "We may clarify that this matter pertains to the year 2019 when sampling was conducted at the premises of a distributor of Patanjali Ayurved Limited ("PAL"). A case was filed before the Chief Judicial Magistrate Pithoragarh against the nominee of PAL and its distributor. The recent court conviction pertains solely to the nominees of PAL and its distributor who are going to challenge the conviction order. Kindly note that Food Business came into the fold of Patanjali Foods Limited ("the Company") in July, 2022 only and hence the Company has no connection with this matter. The Company remains dedicated to transparency and integrity in all its operations."

According to reports, in 2019 samples of the said product was collected from the local market and sent for analysis to FSSAI lab in Ghaziabad.

Subsequently a case was registered in 2021 after the lab reports were found that the product didn't meet the standards.
