Be firm against those who put outdated goods to the market


President Mahinda Rajapaksa strongly advised officials of the Consumer Services Authority to take firm action against those who issue outdated goods to the market that are bad for consumer health.

President also advised Health Ministry and Consumer Services Authority to conduct a joint and methodical system to prevent such activities. He further instructed to blacklist such parties and take necessary actions to prevent such illegal businesses within the country.

President said this yesterday (June 5) at Temple Trees, when his attention was drawn to some products of a company which has changed the expiry date of medicines, perfumes and cosmetics, found according to a raid conducted by Consumer Services Authority.

The Consumer Service Authority told the President that they have been informed about many outdated goods which are currently circulating in the market. The President accordingly instructed them to make necessary arrangements to prevent such activities.
