Officials seized suspected adulterated ghee sold under the Nandini brand during surprise raids on shops and warehouses across the city on Tuesday. Since the busting of a fake Nandini manufacturing unit in Mysuru, KMF teams have been visiting shops to check for substandard ghee sold under its brand.

Officials found suspected fake Nandini ghee in retail stores in Jayanagar, Srinagar as well as in two warehouses in Hoskote and Makali. “We are on the trail of this supply chain. It seems the products have come from the godown in Mysuru which was raided last week,” an official said. The FSSAI takes up two weeks to come up with reports on the adultration of the food.

The KMF labs, on the other hand, can test the products and produce authentic results within a day. Officials are also planning to introduce a QR code or hologram on the Nandini products package to prevent easy mimicking of their designs.
