Examining food products
The Municipality’s PR department stressed that rejected food products are usually examined at MoH labs, which in turn warn the GCC Early Warning Center if they are found to be hazardous. The department added samples of all imported food products are examined and the shipments are not passed unless the specimens tests are found fit for human consumption. Otherwise, the importer is given the choice of either destroying the shipment or re-exporting it.
