Huge quantities of spoiled, adulterated and expired food products were seized and destroyed at the Askar landfill in a successful crackdown on commercial fraud. The move came following a decision issued by the Public Prosecution assigning the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism to destroy more than 94,000 unsafe items that were stored in two warehouses, in Hamala and Juffair. The Ministry’s Inspection Department officials carried out the process of confiscating and disposing of them in coordination with competent authorities from the Interior Ministry, Health Ministry and Municipality of the Southern Region.
