The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the general public against patronising Exeter Corned Beef purported to have been manufactured in Argentina.
‘The FDA has reliably been informed that the manufacturing plant of Exeter Corned Beef in Argentina has been shut down for some time now and that the product is now being manufactured in Brazil,’ a statement from Hudu Mogtari, Chief Executive of FDA said.
According to the statement, despite this development, some persons are still importing Exeter Corned Beef indicating the country of origin to be Argentina.
‘The public is therefore being cautioned against the patronage of Exeter Corned Beef purported to be manufactured in Argentina since the FDA cannot guarantee its safety. Consumers of Exeter Corned Beef are advised to patronise only the ones from Brazil, which the FDA has approved currently,’ it said.
The FDA asked the public to report to any FDA office or the police on any shop or persons found distributing or selling Exeter Corned Beef purported to be manufactured in Argentina.
‘Furthermore, the general public is being assured of FDA’s readiness to ensure public health and safety at all times and therefore appeals to the general public to give any information on persons suspected to be engaged in any practice which has the possibility of endangering public health and safety,’ it added.
