Residents may want to take note to avoid purchasing the cooking oil – Leeza – as the Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) has issued a ban on the product.
The product has been banned in the country because “it wasn’t up to the standard”.
The PACP’s statement read: “Dr Saeed bin Khamis al Kaabi, chairman of PACP issued a decision to ban the pure cooking oil, Leeza for not meeting the standards [set]”.
For the sake of the public’s health, the consumer watchdog has also ordered the withdrawal of the remaining products from all the markets in the Sultanate.
Violators will be levied a fine not less than RO50 and not exceeding a total of RO2,000.
