JFDA: Continuous achievements

May 21,2020 - Last updated at May 21,2020

Ad-dustour’s Mohannad Mubaideen said that monitoring and inspection teams from the Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan shut down 34 food establishments and suspended the work of 176 others during 3,632 inspection tours, according to the administration.

During the field visits in Ramadan across the Kingdom, health inspectors destroyed 123,837 kilogrammes of food, including meat and fish, in addition to 10,585 liters of juice deemed unfit for human consumption.

The administration also issued 2,217 warnings, while referred 210 businesses to court for committing violations including selling expired commodities among others. The writer said that this is no more than an introduction of the JFDA’s work, highlighting that the administration’s ongoing progress is not linked to a certain manager, but represents all predecessor-successor leaderships’ activities and achievements.

The JFDA is carrying out a big mission, as it continues its work despite certain attempts to spoiling citizens’ food and medications, while others love to feed the people rotten food, but the administration is on the lookout for corrupts who attempt to tamper with people’s food, he concluded.
