Govt burns expired, substandard food in Farah



The local Taliban officials in Farah province in western Afghanistan reportedly set approximately 6 tonnes of expired and substandard food on fire, according to the Taliban-controlled media.

The Taliban amassed and burned some 6,000 kilograms of spoiled food from different areas of the province, according to the Farah province’s Taliban police chief, who was quoted by the Taliban-controlled Bakhtar state News Agency on Saturday, November 12.

To ensure the health of the people, Taliban officials previously incinerated five tonnes of substandard food in Kabul province, the capital of Afghanistan, two months ago.

The authorities advised the residents to be aware of the materials’ quality and the expiry date and urged the sellers to stop selling low-quality, and expired products.

This comes as a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) stated that Afghanistan is currently dealing with several disease outbreaks including malaria, whooping cough, Covid-19, dengue fever, Congo fever, measles, and Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD), which have also resulted in a great number of fatalities.—Khaama News Agency
