The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), nodal statutory agency responsible for protecting and promoting public health in India through constant regulation and supervision of food safety, bans stapler pins in tea bags from January 2018, keeping health hazards in consideration. It has been anticipated to affect the fast growing packaged tea business in the country. The use of stapler pins in tea bags poses potential hazard to consumers since any loose staple pin consumed inadvertently with tea may cause a serious health hazard. Currently, tea bags are either stapled or knotted.
