Muscat: The seized products included items without proper licenses, prohibited goods, and products lacking essential health and safety information.

The CPA explained that the seizure follows the field visits conducted by its law enforcement officers in the governorate’s markets to ensure that commercial establishments were in compliance with the Consumer Protection Law, its executive regulations, and relevant decisions.

The prohibited items were confiscated to ensure they do not re-enter the market.

The CPA reaffirms its commitment to diligently monitor the markets, ensuring the protection of consumers’ health, safety, and rights. It pledges to take legal actions against those who defy these regulations and encourages consumers to report any violations they may come across in the markets, through its various communication channels.
