    The Odisha government has asked district health officials to collect samples of soft drinks in the state after heavy metals were found in different soft drinks in other parts of the country, said an official on Thursday.

    The State Food Safety Commissioner has asked the additional district medical officers and city health officers to collect samples for tests and analysis.

    “You are requested to direct your food safety officers for collection of samples for test and analysis and factual report on collection of soft drink samples should be given to this office immediately,” said a letter from the state food safety commissioner.

    A health official said they have already collected three samples from Bhubaneswar and sent them to the State Public Health Laboratory for testing.

    Union Minister of State for Health, Faggan Singh Kulaste on Wednesday informed the Rajya Sabha that lead and other heavy metals like cadmium and chromium have been found in the samples of five different soft drinks manufactured by two major multinational companies in India.

    Samples of five different cold drinks — Sprite, Mountain Dew, 7UP, Pepsi and Coca Cola — were submitted to National Test House (in Kolkata) for testing.
