FDA: Be cau­tious in buy­ing Noche Buena prod­ucts

Palawan Daily News - - National - By Jim­my­ley E. Guz­man

The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Philip­pines (FDA) re­minded con­sumers anew to be cau­tious in buy­ing food items spe­cially this hol­i­day sea­son.

Au­thor­i­ties from the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion Po­lice Of­fice (NCRPO) and FDA re­cently seized var­i­ous pro­cessed food prod­ucts that were ei­ther ex­pired or tam­pered in Manila fol­low­ing re­ports re­ceived by FDA’s Reg­u­la­tion En­force­ment Unit.

Health au­thor­i­ties, on the other hand, also re­minded the pub­lic to al­ways check the ex­piry date of the prod­ucts to avoid pos­si­ble food poi­son­ing.

Mean­while, the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI) also urged busi­ness op­er­a­tors and sell­ers to strictly fol­low the sug­gested re­tail prices (SRPs) of Noche Buena prod­ucts, as well as ba­sic ne­ces­si­ties and prime com­modi­ties to avoid fines and penal­ties.
