After Maggi noodles, another product from a multi-national brand has now failed laboratory testing. A sample of Dettol soap, a brand owned by Reckitt Benckiser (India) Limited, has failed laboratory tests, reports Daily Mail.

According to reports, the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) collected a total of 11 samples of medicines, tinctures and Dettol soap samples from Agra in November last year and subsequently sent them for laboratory tests in Lucknow.


The report was sent to the FDA. Dettol and 10 other medicines failed the tests and were declared sub-standard and also failed standard laboratory tests.


Agra drug inspector RC Yadav said:

“The wrapper of the sample of Dettol soap collected by us mentioned its weight to be 125gm. However, the actual weight in our tests was 117.0470gms. Besides, it was bought from the shop of one Santosh Kumar Valmiki who was found to be running the shop without a licence.”
