The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) in collaboration with five Local Authorities in Western Province has seized assorted goods collectively worth K 3, 719.00.
CCPC Public Relations Officer Namukolo Kasumpa says the seizure came in the wake of the five separate inspections conducted in over 54 trading places in April 2018.
Ms Kasumpa explained that the seized items had defects and did not meet the minimum standards required for retail.
She disclosed that the products seized included carbonated drinks, biscuits, cosmetics, baking powder and assorted snacks.
Ms Kasumpa says the seizure of the goods was conducted during a sensitization and advocacy tour of the Western Province aimed at sensitizing consumers on their rights and obligations as well as inspecting trading premises in selected Districts in the Province with the view of ascertaining the trader’s compliance levels with the Competition and Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) No 24 of 2010
