(Business in Cameroon) - The sale of imported disposable diapers is currently temporarily banned across the Cameroonian territory. This follows a meeting held February 12 at the trade ministry which saw the government take the decision, upon suspicions that the products may contain harmful chemical substances.
Indeed, the warning originally issued by the French Agency for Health Security was relayed to the Cameroonian department of trade by the National Agency for Standards and Quality (Anor), raising concerns among the population.
For the time being, vendors of the concerned products have been instructed to stop selling them pending a laboratory analysis of samples by the National Drug Quality Control Laboratory (Lanacome).
Any offender of this measure will face penalty of having their cargoes confiscated and destroyed by the department’s controllers.
