The Ethiopian Food & Drug Authority has issued a ban on no less than 63 brands comprising eight food types in Addis Abeba and surrounding areas. Half of the brands are iodised salt products, while the list also includes five vinegar products, three peanut butter and honey products, a brand of baby food, candy and sugar. Officials say the items were on shelves without government approval and lacked any labels that would enable them to be traced to their manufacturers. The products have been circulating in shops located in the capital and neighbouring areas. The Authority has called on shopowners and administrative bodies to remove the products from the market.
