Biscuits manufacturer Parle Products today said it has challenged the recent Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) action regarding its brand Kachha Mango Bite in the Bombay High Court. "As regards Kachha Mango bite, we have challenged the action taken by the FDA and the matter is sub-judice and pending before the Bombay High Court," Parle Products said in a statement.

The company reiterated that use of lactic acid in Kachha Mango Bite is absolutely safe for human consumption. It said lactic acid is widely used in several food items of daily consumption including curd, bread and milk powder, among others. Recently, FDA had asked Parle Products to recall the entire stock of its popular candy Kachha Mango Bite from the market for using lactic acid as a raw material.
