Nepal’s Department of Drug Administration has asked Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda to immediately recall six medical products as they was found to be of “substandard quality”.
The administration, in a notice, said that six products made by Divya Pharmacy in Uttarakhand, were found to be of substandard quality during inspections at various outlets, and tests on specimens.
According to the public notice, Patanjali’s Amla Churna of batch no AMC067, Divya Gashar Churna of batch no A-GHCI31, Bahuchi Churna of batch no BKC 011, Triphala Churna of batch no A-TPC151, Aswangandha of batch no AGC 081 and Adviya Churna of batch no DYC 059 had failed microbial tests.
There was no response from Patanjali Ayurveda Kendra in Kathmandu, the sole distributor of the products in Nepal. Patanjali products are quite popular in Nepal and it is estimated millions of households use them.
