As a part of a mandate to ensure safe food to the citizens, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) conducts testing of food for different type of adulterants, chemical and micro-biological contaminants and other safety parameters for food. Such food testing is done by FSSAI through a network of FSSAI notified laboratories across the country. Hundreds of thousands of tests are conducted in these labs by FSSAI laboratories every year. A consumer an also take samples of food and get it tested in such labs. If on such testing the food is found to be unsafe, the cost of testing the food is found to be unsafe, the cost of testing is reimbursed to the consumers. Simultaneously the food safety officers take samples of such products for enforcement purposes.
