Businessman charged for selling expired, foreign-labelled items

first_imgThe Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) has filed charges against a businessman after seizing several expired and foreign-labelled items at his business.According to the Department, it recently seized 63 tins of “Anglo Corn Beef” labelled in a foreign language, and during this exercise has encountered expired items at the premise of the proprietor. However, the GA-FDD did not revealed the name of the businessman.The Department’s prosecutor on Thursday filed criminal charges against the proprietor for “knowingly and deliberately offering for sale expired and foreign-labelled items.”The Department has reiterated calls to all consumers to carefully examine all food products before making purchases, to ensure that these foods are labelled in English andcontain all the required labelling information, which includes brand name, common name, net contents, list of ingredients, storage instructions, name and address of manufacturer or person preparing the food, and its country of origin, expiry and manufacture dates.The GA-FDD disclosed that it has had cause to refuse entry to containers of food bringing in foreign labelled “Ovaltine” from Vietnam on May 10 last, and “Confectionery” from China on June 6th that were labelled in a foreign language, had no address of manufacturer, and were without date marks.“Wholesaler [and] retailers also have a legal responsibility to ensure that wholesome foods reach the consumers, and to ensure that all labels are in English. The Department is calling on these proprietors to adhere to the Food and Drugs Regulation or face prosecution,” the Department said in a statement.Under Regulation No. 18 of the Food & Drugs Act (Chapter 34:03) of the Laws of Guyana and the Food & Drugs Regulations No. 10 of 1977 of Guyana, it is a requirement for all foods, drugs,cosmetics and medical devices that are imported for sale or use in Guyana to have labels that are in English and comply with the requirements of Part II Section 18 (1) (2) which states the necessary information that the label should carry.However, the GA-FDD pointed out that it has been observed that there are numerous foreign labelled food items being offered for sale on the local market.“It is essential that regulated products be labeled in English so persons offering these products for sale and those using them can clearly understand important information, such as their direction for use, expiry date, ingredients, name [and] address of manufacturer, storage condition and necessary precautions. This enables consumers or users to make informed choices on products,” the Department emphasised.last_img read more

Arsenal team news and line-up v Everton

first_img Gabriel is tipped to return to the Arsenal defence 1 GoalkeeperWith David Ospina being beaten three times in midweek, Wojciech Szczesny might fancy his chances at a recall to the first team, but it seems likely that he will remain on the bench.DefenceWenger derided his team’s defending as ‘suicidal’ with Per Mertesacker probably the most guilty of the backline. The German was woeful in midweek and it seems as though he could pay the price this weekend. We’ve predicted that Gabriel will get the nod ahead of the World Cup winner.MidfieldRamsey could well feature alongside Santi Cazorla in the heart of midfield, but it seems likely that he will start from the bench if fit. Despite his invisible man act, Mesut Ozil is tipped to start.AttackDanny Welbeck’s goals may have dried up, but the former Manchester United man still offers a lot going forward. Theo Walcott’s lack of support on the right for Hector Bellerin suggests that he will not start, with Wenger instead going for Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez. Despite his wastefulness in front of goal, expect Olivier Giroud to start.Arsenal fans, how do you think you’ll line-up this weekend? Comment below…Arsenal v Everton is EXCLUSIVELY LIVE on talkSPORT, Sunday from 2pm. Click here to stream LIVE. Arsenal will be keen to make amends for their appalling showing against Monaco with a strong performance at the weekend, but that will be easier said than done as they face an Everton side on an upward swing.While the Gunners limped to a dismal Champions League defeat to the Ligue 1 side, their Merseyside counterparts gained a morale boosting victory that Toffees boss Roberto Martinez hopes can help kick start his side’s faltering domestic campaign.Arsene Wenger lamented his side’s ‘suicidal defending’, and conceded that while he is trying to focus on leading his side to another top four finish, the manner of the midweek defeat hurts.Gunners fans were particularly vocal after this latest showing, with well-known ‘super fan’ Claude giving talkSPORT his thoughts in a recent phone-in.When quizzed on how he might change his line-up for Sunday’s clash with Everton – live and exclusive on talkSPORT from 2pm – Wenger appeared coy, hinting that there could be changes at the back with January signing Gabriel in the frame to step in.There was also good news on the injury front in regards to Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini. The duo are back in training and could be in line to at least make the bench for the weekend.The news was not as positive for Jack Wilshere though, with the England man having to go under the knife again for a minor procedure. Wenger was upbeat, claiming that he will be out for ‘days, not weeks’, but the midfielder’s absence remains felt in the Arsenal ranks.Below is how the Gunners could line up… 1last_img read more
