The ANMAT (National Administration of Drugs, Food and Medical Technology) notified this Monday, through its Official Gazette, that the marketing of a tybo cheese is prohibited due to various irregularities.
The organism explained that the elaboration, fractionation and commercialization throughout the national territory of the product is prohibited, since, according to the ANMATthis is illegal.
The tybo cheese that banned the ANMAT it is: “Tybo brand Villac cheese, Ignacio Montarzzino, Rural area – 2301 – Vila – Santa FeRNE No. 21-79410, RNP No. 21-033617, CG No. 21-003-50, SENASA SF 06049″.
Thanks to an investigation that was initiated by the Santa Fe Food Safety Agency (ASSAl) in the town of San Guillermo, it was possible to corroborate that the product “had registration data that turned out to be false.”
It is considered that cheese represents “a risk to the health of the population, because the quality, safety and efficacy of cosmetics cannot be guaranteed,” the authorities said.
Likewise, the agency explained that “by ignoring the manufacturing conditions, it is not possible to specify if the products were made with permitted ingredients and under the concentrations established by current regulations.”
For this reason, its sale is prohibited in “any presentation, batch and expiration date”, since “it lacks establishment and product registration, and because it is falsely labeled by displaying non-existent RNE and RNPA numbers on the label, turning out to be consequently an illegal product”.
What does the provision of the ANMAT say?
The entity indicated through its Official Gazette that “in order to protect the health of citizens from the consumption of illegal products, the INAL’s Department of Guidance in Food Regulations recommends prohibiting the preparation, fractioning and marketing throughout the national territory of the aforementioned food”.
They also emphasize that the commercialization of “all those products that indicate the RNE and RNPA mentioned on their labels is prohibited.”
