FDA senior officer DK Verma said, “People purchase more the sweets of mawa and chena on Sharad Purnima. So we have collected samples of sweets on Sharad Purnima. Action will be continued in Karwa Chauth and Diwali festival. There were chances of adulteration of sweets on Sharad Purnima. So FDA made two teams to check substandard and adulterated sweets in the market.”
