Operation

Five regulatory samples were removed to be analyzed in a laboratory, according to Senior Food Safety Officer (FSO) Samiran Baruah.

He went on to say that the agency has been inspecting fruits and vegetables at the market on a regular basis since there have been multiple reports of fruits and vegetables that have grown unnaturally large, posing health risks.

Calcium Carbide is a chemical that is used to help fruits ripen. This chemical can cause cancer, food poisoning, gastrointestinal discomfort, and mouth ulcers in fruits that have been ripened with it.
