Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman’s Consumer Protection Authority (CPA) in Al Wusta seized some violating commodities that do not conform to the standards in a commercial establishment in the Wilayat of Mahout.
This step comes within the framework of the Authority’s efforts in various governorates of the Sultanate in following up and monitoring markets, curbing abuses committed by some suppliers, and combating the spread of unauthorised commodities that have negative impact on the health of the society.
During their field visits to the shops and markets in the Wilayat of Mahout, the judicial control officers noticed that a commercial establishment sold a number of commodities that did not conform to specifications and standards and had expired dates. Accordingly, the Department took legal measures and seized the violating products in preparation for their destruction.
The CPA calls upon all merchants to ensure that the goods conform to the specifications and standards, and to commit to the decisions issued to withdraw products from the market and prevent their circulation because of the danger that threatens health and safety of consumers.
The Authority affirms that it will spare no effort in following up and monitoring markets. It appeals to consumers to report any violations that they may notice, through the various communication channels of the Authority.
