Big Basket, which is an Indian online grocery and food products provider, has come under scanner for the bad quality of its products. There had been several occasions when big brands have been notified by the government and food quality management agencies for the bad quality of the product they sell in the market.
One such incident came into notice when couple of years back Maggie was found with excess lead and then the Food Safety And Drug Administration (FSDA) Lucknow had to interfere regarding the food quality maintenance.
One of the prime concerns is the names of celebrities associated with these big brands with the help of which they perk up their product sales in the market. Shah Rukh Khan has been doing advertisements for Big Basket and with now questions raised on the quality of the product of that company, celebrity is expected to be answerable as they are been paid the handsome money for these endorsements.
Food Safety And Drug Administration FSDA in Lucknow told that Black gram (Urad dal) samples have failed the quality check and apart from Big Basket there are five other companies that have failed the food quality check and time of month has been given to these companies to appeal in referral lab else there will be strict action taken against them in the SFDA court.
