About a month ago,the company's products were banned in America, as USFDA detected the presence of salmonella bacteria and also high amount of lead content in its ready to eat packets. Therefore, Varsha Gaikwad, minister of state asked Maharashtra FDA commissioner Harshdeep Kamble to test Haldiram packets in India also.

"We collected various samples such as sev, bhujia, moong dal and papadi chat after receiving a request from the government," said Kamble.

Maharashtra FDA conducted tests to check the presence of salmonella and E-coli bacteria in various samples. All the tests showed negative results and also it had less than 2.5 ppm lead which makes it safe for consumption.
