Administration Bans Unlabeled Foods

The Ethiopian Food & Drug Administration has banned 27 food products under six categories for failing to have an explicit package. The banned food items failed to put labels on the products with descriptions about their production date, expiry date, level of nutrients, where the product was processed and by whom. The banned foods include 11 brands of edible oil, two peanut butter brands, seven iodized salt brands, two kinds of honey, three types of candy, and two types of Vimto, a sweet tonic beverage. Ezana and Tana oils, Roza and Maedi peanut butters, as well as Dana and Vinto Vimto, are among the banned brands. The Administration also banned Awash and Kana table salts, Sisay and Welela honey brands, and Liza and Cartoons candies.
