Two social workers moved the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court against Amway Company accusing it of selling many products without approval from Food Safety and Standard Authority. Sachin Khobragade and Jammu Anand claimed in their PIL (No. 69/2014) that the company got approval to sell only four products, but it was selling 36 products, flouting the norms.
A division bench comprising justices Bhushan Gavai and Vinay Deshpande then issued notices to Food Safety and Standard Authority through its chief executive officer, union health secretary, food safety commissioner and Amway India Enterprises Limited, asking them to reply within three weeks.
The petitioners stated that nutrilite products sold by the company didn't comply with strict quality and quantity norms and labels used on its boxes were misleading. They had apprised of the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) commissioner many a times but no action was taken. They demanded investigations into all its products from the Food Safety and Standard Authority.
