Expired Goods Seized in Kabwe District

Assorted energy drinks worth K1,008 have been seized by a joint team of inspectors from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) and Kabwe Municipal Council (KMC) in Kabwe district of Central province.

The inspection covered 16 trading premises of Mukobeko and Kawama markets of Kabwe’s Central Business District (CBD) and was conducted on 3rd June, 2022 with the aim at assessing the traders’ compliance levels with the law.

The seized drinks include Sun Dance, Mojo and Yess drinks among others. The drinks were expired and therefore not fit for human consumption. Selling or offering for sale products not fit for purpose or expired is against the Competition and Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) No. 24 of 2010 as well as the Food and Safety Act No. 7 of 2019.

CCPC in collaboration with KMC and other relevant stakeholders will continue to enforce the law in accordance with their respective mandates to ensure that consumers are protected from any unfair trading practices in the country.
