 Expired goods seized in Monze District

By Staff Writer
A team of inspectors from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) and Monze Town Council (MTC) have seized goods worth K7, 121.96 in a joint inspection.

The inspection covered 12 business outlets at Monze’s Central Business District (CBD) and was conducted on December 2, 2022.

CCPC Public Relations Officer Rainford Mutabi said the seized assorted beverages, foodstuffs and cosmetic products were expired and therefore not fit for human consumption.

Mr Mutabi said selling or offering for sale expired or products not fit for purpose is against the Competition and Consumer Protection.

“In light of the above, CCPC and MTC wish to warn all suppliers, retailers and distributors to cease and desist from selling unsuitable products which have exceeded their shelf life.
“To ensure enhanced consumer protection in the country, CCPC in collaboration with MTC and other relevant stakeholders will continue to enforce the law in accordance with their respective mandates,” he said.
