No formalin found in 800 tested fish in Goa?

Some time back, the news of formalin being found in fish in Goa spread like wildfire. It’s a chemical used to keep fish looking fresh even after days of transport.

Since March 12 2021, around 842 fish samples have been tested by FDA’s food safety officers. Random fish were selected. The fisheries minister Filipe Neri Rodrigues revealed that no trace of the chemical was found on them. In fact, a government has appointed the Quality Council of India (QCI) to check for formaldehyde in fish at two border checkposts – Patradevi and Pollem.

“Till date, 42,522 vehicles have been checked at these points and no adverse findings have been reported,” Rodrigues said. “Further, the FDA, through its food safety officers, is carrying out random sampling of fish sold in the markets that are then sent to private NABL FSSAI-approved laboratories for detection of formalin,” he added.
