Angola: Economy Police Burn Expired Foodstuffs in Zaire

Mbanza Congo — At least 300 bags of 50 kilograms of rice each, 75 of wheat and 25 of maize flour with expired validity were incinerated on Friday in Mbanza Congo city, northern Zaire province, by the Economic Activity Police.

The police also dumped 132 containers of soft drinks and 53 boxes of frozen chicken after they were found improper for human consumption.

The spokesperson for the provincial command of the national police in Zaire, Gomes Zombo, said the products were removed from the market thanks to the cooperation of other organs involved in the control of the quality of consumer goods.

This is the second time the police burn decayed foodstuffs in Zaire this year. The first happened early this year in the municipality of Soyo.
