Absolutely vital question and FSSAI must be compelled to give a satisfactory response more  
Melamine mixing in milk should be totally banned more  
It appears Govt is not giving due importance in controlling the quality of food products being sold in the market.The scope of FSSAI is huge ,they should be provided with proper infrastructures and there should be some counter check also to verify that they do their work diligently. more  
Can any one furnish the test report on fssai certified milk where melamine has been found. If found, Both manufacturer and fssai are to act & withdraw products from the market and take care for future. more  
Melamine is widely used in the production of certain plastics, e.g. Formica. .It was being used as Table ware and also said to be Micro wave-able . But there was a warning that melamine plates also like most plastic tableware, can potentially pose health risks by leaching chemicals into the our food items .

The recent outbreak in infants showed that melamine ingested in large doses may cause stones and illness. We already know microwaving food in plastic containers (even microwave-safe plastic) is a health no-no .

Thanks Mr. Kaushikk for conscientizing us on the Huge work Load of FSSAI . It is true they can't check millions of formulations .
Their job seems to be table work only . That is when manufactures submit for Licencing , they check the ingredient on paper and certify .If they delay in certification the Government will not keep quiet as it will impairing production and development .

JUST TO CREATE FEAR AMONG ADULTERATORS THEY MAKE ON AND OFF SURPRISE CHECKS IN RESTAURANTS . THEY SHOULD ALSO DO THIS AT THE MARKET LEVEL DRAWING SAMPLES ON AND OFF TO KEEP THEIR IMAGE CLEAN. more  
Sir, is that so? we should not use melamineware plates and dishes. I always use this product as it looks good, easy to clean. please let me know if I and my family's health are at risk becoz of this. more
