Action will be taken as per the rules if any serious defect is detected in Patanjali's products.

Taking cognizance of media reports about insects and fungus allegedly being found in two of Patanjali's food products, Uttarakhand government has decided to examine their quality.

"Food security officials have been asked to take samples of Patanjali's products in question and check the veracity of reports appearing in a section of the media," state Health Minister Surendra Singh Negi said.

The order to examine two of Patanjali's food products was issued in view of news reports about insects allegedly being found in a packet of Patanjal Atta Noodles at Hisar in Haryana and fungus being found in a packet of Patanjali ghee in Haridwar, he said.

Negi said it was the state government's responsibility to ensure that public health was not compromised under any circumstance and the order was a step in that direction.

Action will be taken as per the rules if any serious defect is detected in Patanjali's products, he said.
