    The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India might have banned Nestle Maggi for the lead content found in it, but wonder what they are doing about the plastic rice China is dumping in India. Yes, you read that right! China s producing rice made out of plastic and exporting it to India by mixing it with the normal rice. And, the unaware Indian traders, blinded by the greed of money are selling it in the market, that too in bulk.
    According to latest reports, the Delhi HC has now observed the increasing risk of Indians eating this fake rice and has agreed to hear a plea which alleges that rice made out of plastic and imported from China is being sold in the country.
    The HC has sought samples of the rice and will hear the plea on August 20.
    According to PTI, an application by advocate Sugriva Dubey, has sought that wholesale traders of rice, pulses and fruits be raided and samples be tested for
    adulteration to protect the common man.
    "Due to globalisation, rice in large quantities is being imported from China and even pulses are being imported from different countries, but no quality test is
    conducted," the application states.
    As suggested by the applicant, plastic rice can lead to grave gastric ailments because it cannot be digested.
