The Department of Customs states that it would take legal action against the importers who released nearly 200 metric tons of dried chillies mixed with cancerous substances to the market thereby violating Custom’s regulations.

A Custom’s spokesman stated that this contaminated stock of dried chillies have been imported from India via 16 importers.

Sample tests have found that the chillies are contaminated with a high level of Aflatoxins.

The specialist doctor attached to the Food Hygiene Bureau of the Health Ministry, Sapumal Dhanapala told our news team that the confirmed samples were sent to the Customs Department to initiate further action.
