CAA on alert on cooking oil

Consumer affairs authority
Consumer Affairs Authority will pay special attention on re-empowering the labeling laws on the manufacturing of cooking oil and forming new regulations.

According to the Director (Consumer Affairs and Information) of the CAA Mrs. Chandra Thilakarathne, surveys carried out by the authorities have identified the different kinds of oil in the market which are not suitable for human consumption.

There are some instances where the coconut oil is mixed with other oil varieties. 

In addition, initiatives would be taken to register the oil manufacturing and importing companies within two months.
