This is in reference to AIIMS allegations to have found a live rat in our bread. We deny the allegations. We would want to reassure you that our manufacturing facility situated at Ludhiana, Punjab is an ISO 22000:2005 certified and FSSAI approved having stringent GMP and GHP systems in place and our client follows the best industrial practices in its manufacturing facilities concerning health, safety and hygiene.

The matter came to light on July 29, 2015, when it was reported that a live rat was allegedly found in a two slice bread pack within the premises of AIIMS. Immediately on receipt of such notice our representatives rushed to AIIMS who met the relevant officials of AIIMS and clarified that the alleged incident could not happen at our end for various reasons explained to them.

In this background, on September 15, 2015, to our utter shock and surprise, a Show Cause Notice dated September 09, 2015 was received from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) calling upon us to explain the alleged incident. The said notice was well responded on September 17, 2015, wherein it was brought to the notice of AIIMS that our manufacturing facility was ISO 22000:2005 Certified and FSSAI Approved facility and that the contract for pest control is being carried out by one of the most reputed pest control agencies of India. It was also explained that the sealing of the bread packets in question take place at a very high temperature of over 170-180 Degree Celsius and that no living organism much less a rat could survive at such high temperatures being packed in a plastic packet of only two slices pack. Further, after sealing, the bread packet takes around 18-24 Hrs to reach the retailers/end users and during its transit any such living organism would suffocate.

We did not receive any communication from AIIMS since then nor any notice of enquiry being carried out by them has been received.

We again wish to assure that the facts as alleged by AIIMS in their notice are imaginary and cannot be possible by any stretch of imagination. By the alleged incident perhaps AIIMS has tried to shift its own faults and negligence or acts of sabotage by which perhaps a rat was claimed to found in the sealed packaging.
