Why FSSAI is failing to curb ethepon from china

FSSAI may have been doing some good work on policy but has largely been a big ZERO in enforcement. This attached image from Sobhita clearly highlights ethepon and I challenge FSSAI CEO. 99% of mango sold in delhi noid gurgaon ncr and may be even India is ripened using ethepon or calcium carbide which is highly carcinogenic. several members have already shared experience. why cant fssai work with customs and commerce ministry and ensure this ethepon import from china is banned. localcircles and its members please take this up as i have zero confidence that fssai will be able to do any thing. more

Sudesh Rai has very well brought out the abilities and inabilities of F.S.S.A.I. We the circle members have no other rights than that a consumer has .

May be some members are qualified , experienced but all are totally involved and enthusiastic to prevent any health hazard to the public , these comments feature here.

This should be understood by the Local Circles Authorities and make provisions from time to time to see that some thing comes out from the Government .

If these posts ideas , remarks , suggestions are wrong let the authorities inform so . more  
Ethylene as ripener is accepted universally but calcium carbide is strictly banned more  
For that matter SAFAL fruit and vegetables are safe as they are not chemically ripened. When SAFAL can enforce strict norms for fruit and vegetables sold through its outlets, Government should ensure safety norms elsewhere also. They already
have infrastructure in place only strict enforcement is desired. more  
We must educate our lawmakers and law implementers that they have a family to take care of their wellbeing, specially health (=wealth) which they may not be aware of due to lure of money, otherwise our exercise will remain futile. more  
Let FSSAI keep a watch on such fruits and necessary advisory should be issued. more
