Food Safety: Govt labs function without analyzing equipment

Kozhikode: There is steady fall in the the number of cases being registered by Commissioner of Food Safety in state. The post of Chief Food Analyst is lying vacant for years and there is 70 per cent fall in the number of cases. In all analytical laboratories in the state gas chromatography and high power liquid chromatography, equipment used in analytical chemistry for separating and analyzing components are non functional. Which means that the agency even if seizes vegetables or food items like maggi it wont be able to test it within 15 days as stipulated by the law. Also atomic absorption spectroscopy needed to analyze lead content in noodle is also absent in the state.
