Twenty-four tons of juice and two hundred cartons of cakes have been returned to Iran at the Pushta border.
Halabja Health Department Director Azad Mustafa said today that their food monitoring units found 100 boxes of biscuits and 24 tons of juice at the Pishta Border Crossing with Iran that were following safety regulations. The biscuits and the juice did not follow safety regulations, the director added.
Also, over 100 cake boxes were seized because they were imported contrary to the Iraqi safety regulations, Mustafa said.
Authorities in Halabja and the Kurdistan region often seize batches of food that are not safe too eat or fail to meet food safety regulations.
