Malawi Bureau of Standards speaks tough over rotten food

32

The Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) has warned shop owners in the country against selling of rotten foods.

The development comes at a time when Malawians are bracing persistent blackouts that have seen businesses not running due to lack of power supply.

Among the businesses include shops that sell foods which require very low temperatures for them not to go bad.

MBS managing director Davlin Chokazinga has since advised shop owners in the country to dump all food items showing signs of going bad in their cold room.

Chokazinga added that the body is to take measures if shop owners are seen defying the order from MBS.

Concurring with MBS, Malawi’s health ministry said people are not supposed to take rotten foods as this puts lives at risk.

Following blackouts in the country some people are reported to have bought and eaten rotten foods from shops, a development that has led to health problems such as food poisoning.

  5. The root cause is ESCOM…how many can afford using generators many hours every day…doing business in Malawi has become very expensive…no wonder prominent investors like Aliko Dangote and our own Bushiri are shunning this country…

  6. This bureau is also very weak, it works only when an issue sparks out bit on its own very docile. And I don’t believe it has its own fixed office and no direction, most people fails to reach this office for tip off and it is completely immersed, invisible and all sought of words you call it. We see a lot of Chinese shops and plenty of counterfeit materials in town but the bureau is dormant to address the situation.

  8. Speaking tough or acting tough? I don’t think this requires sitting down discussing while enjoying a cup of coffee. Don’t waste time go and inspect now now

  9. Escom is the major culprit in all this, for selling rotten electricity country wide. Hopefully MBS will apply the tough talking on them as well.
