MBT orders withdrawal of corn flakes from market.

SATYENDRA PATHAK DOHA THE Ministry of Business and Trade (MBT) has ordered the withdrawal of all corn flakes from the market.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the MBT said that the decision is a result of the chemical analysis of the product following a complaint against it. The analysis proved the existence of 'rancid' smell in some samples.

Other analyses revealed that a number of other samples contained a high degree of peroxide.

Considering the health and safety of consumers paramount and to ensure their right to good service, the MBT declared corn flakes unfit for human consumption.

The ministry has warned the sole agency responsible for its supply to immediately withdraw these products from the market and to declare this as such for the public on the spot.

The ministry had earlier received complaints about rotten and rancid corn flakes available in Qatar markets.

It immediately collected a number of samples from different dates and sent them to the central laboratories of the Supreme Council of Health for analysis.

After analysis, the MBT ordered the withdrawal of these products in greater public good.
