Council warns traders on perished food sale

January 2, 2020 6:25 am

The Consumer Council of Fiji has found defrosted and discoloured meat in the storage freezers of supermarkets.

Following market surveillance after TC Sarai, Chief Executive Seema Shandil says the supermarkets have been advised to separate this meat and ensure that it is destroyed.

Shandil is urging consumers to be careful and inspect any meat, or products which may be selling at low prices during this time.

With some part of the country having been affected by Tropical Cyclone Sarai, the council is warning traders to refrain from selling food which has gone bad due to the power outage.

A stern warning is being issued to supermarkets, butcheries and food retailers to destroy food items and meat that have thawed and become unsafe for human consumption.

Shandil says traders must take the lead role in disposing of affected goods as public health and safety is paramount.

The Council adds it will not tolerate past practices where some traders attempted to profit from the sale of goods damaged in natural disasters.
