Prevention of Food Adulteration

Prevention of Food Adulteration Rules, 1955, Rule 32(e) – Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954 – Misbranding - Product had barcode on it and which contained all the relevant information as required by Rule 32(e) such as batch no./code no./lot no. - Necessary information as required under Rule 32(e) was available in the barcode which could all be revealed by a barcode scanner - That the barcode was available on the sample is not in dispute – As relevant information under Rule 32(e) with regard to the lot/code/batch identification to facilitate it being traced to the manufacturer are available in the barcode and which can be decoded by a barcode scanner, we are of the considered opinion that no useful purpose is going to be served by allowing the present prosecution to continue.  #2020 SCeJ 1630
