CCPC warns against buying sanitary pads without expiry date

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission CCPC in Chipata says that traders should be on the lookout for sanitary pads which do not have an expiry date.

CCPC Investigator, Emmanuel Zulu says that it is an offence to sale products that do not have a label of expiry.

Mr. Zulu told Breeze News that consumers who find themselves in such a situation should not hesitate to report such cases.

He said this following an operation where the commission ceased some expiry sanitary pads in Chadiza, Mambwe, Petauke and Nyimba districts.

Mr. Zulu says that the Commission is trying to promote self-Regulation by traders as they do their businesses.

He says that traders should ensure that they check the products that they are selling if they have proper labels.

Meanwhile the Commission has ceased goods estimated at about 381, 700 Kwacha in nine districts of Eastern Province.

Mr. Zulu also revealed that some bags of rice packaged in 10 and 25 Kilogramme bags in Chipata were recommended for product recall because they had no relevant information such as name of supplier, which is contrary to the law.
