The company proceeded the immediate withdrawal of canned sardine lots ,which are not in compliance with health standards.
Rabat – Morocco’s National Office for Food Safety (ONSSA) has found out that a sample of a batch of canned sardines produced by the Aveiro Maroc company in October 2018 does not conform with health standards.
ONSSA released a statement on November 28, warning citizens that canned sardine brand Aveiro Morocco does not comply with nutrition rules.
The health office said that the sample was taken from a canned sardine lot issued by the company in October 2018.
“As part of the regular interventions of ONSSA‘s inspection services, it was found that a sample of a batch of tinned-sardine balls produced on 22-10-2018 by the company Aveiro Morocco is non-compliant with the health plan,” ONSSA said in a statement.
The press release emphasized that the company has proceeded to withdraw the batches of non-compliant canned sardines.
The health office said that investigations by its services at the company found that manufacturing, traceability, and quality practices do not “show any anomalies.”
Investigations determined that ONSSA’s inspection team found that a large sample of “Carle” brand products manufactured by the same company are compliant to health standards and pose no risk to consumers.
