FSSAI bans Stapler Pins in tea bags from January 2018
25 July 2017 Current Affairs: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) banned the use of stapler pins in tea bags from January 2018. 

The FSSAI order directs the concerned food business operators to discontinue the manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of stapled tea bags by 1 January 2018. 

Currently, tea bags are either stapled or knotted. According to industry estimates, the tea bag segment contributes 3-4% by value of total tea sales but it is one of the fastest growing segments at 50-60% year-on-year.

FSSAI is a nodal statutory agency responsible for protecting and promoting public health in India through the regulation and supervision of food safety.
