We were definitely surprised by allegations of fake foods says Trevor Hattingh
When asked by #WeekendBreakfast host Phemelo Motene about the sudden outbreak of violence in Soweto due to allegations of fake foods. Spokesperson for the National Consumer Commission, Trevor Hattingh said that he was definitely surprised to hear about the allegations.
What's being alleged is that there are individuals in the country who are manufacturing their own food says Hattingh.
What is now happening is that the labels and containers are authentic, but the content is not the real thing.Trevor Hattingh, spokesperson for the National Consumer Commission
These allegations are new to us said the spokesperson for the National Consumer Commission.
He adds that they have jurisdiction and the responsibility to conduct inspections.
We conduct regular inspections on a local level says Hattingh.
We have not focused on the informal traders because there was the expectation that those (municipal health services) who have allocated them the certification to conduct business would be policing them.Trevor Hattingh, spokesperson for the National Consumer Commission
