Powdered milk taken off shelves
The National Consumer Rights Protection Institute (Pro Consumidor) has ordered the confiscation of all imported milk powder that is sold loose in many commercial establishments, on the grounds that it is unfit for human consumption.
Pro Consumidor director Anina Castillo said that as soon as they were notified about the sale of this type of milk powder, which is described as being of dubious quality and without any health registration, they investigated the situation, which led to the order for its confiscation.
She said that any supplier who continues to sell it and other imported milk products without the appropriate health registration, would face sanctions.
She added that the confiscated products would be incinerated and their distributors would be fined for their disregard for public health.
The original complaint about the milk powder came from the Dominican Cattle Associations and Federations.
