    its time we take up the MNC'S seriously. it seems they are maintaining double standards.on the food products they supply to consumers especially to the foreign countries and india. The national spirit is limited to them compared to the locals. Its possible that local peoples may work in their units but when it comes to the decision its the boss a foreigner. hope we will be alert like any other developed countries or where the law is strict when it comes to local consumption.

    Gradually it will be clear that these MNCs take Indians for granted regarding QUALITY of product and may be they have umed that the Authorities are incompetent or Corrupt so the quality maintained in WEST and EAST will be different, won't be ANY ISSUE at all.

      I was half-expecting this news. I shall not be surprised if Glaxo biscuits, all pizzas, nasal dosais and wayside tea-drinks fail the test.

        Culture of deshi li, lemon juice need to be re-started to end this problem. The rich peoples have lot of money and the common peoples should not follow their money spending habits blindly. Best is freshly made eatables without any chemicals/ flavours / preservatives. Commercialisation of food & water must end.
