The Consumer Council of Fiji is urging the traders to exercise responsibility and refrain from selling food and other perishable items which have gone bad due to effects of the cyclone.
The Council’s chief executive Premila Kumar says the supermarkets and food stores should destroy these food items and meat.
Kumar says public health safety is paramount and the traders/retailers must take the lead role in disposing off the affected products, ensuring that it is out of reach of even the scavengers.
She adds traders who attempt to profit from the misery of others during these times will not be tolerated and will be reported to the Fiji Commerce Commission.
The consumers are advised to avoid purchasing thawed products.
