A combined team of LCC Health Inspectors and officers from Zambia Bureau of Standard have seized unfortified sugar (sugar without vitamin A) from Food lovers East Park Mall. Selling of unfortified sugar on the Zambian market is contrary to Statutory Instrument No. 155 of 1998 as well as the Food and Drugs Act Cap 303 of the laws of Zambia.
The council would like to urge consumers to be vigilant when buying such products. All sugar products should be labelled “Fortified with vitamin A.” If not labelled the consumer is urged to report either to LCC Public Health department or Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS).
