ZAMBEEF’s independent tests cannot stand in Zambian court of law-ZIEH


Zambia Institute of Environmental Health (ZIEH) has taken great exception to the comments made by Zambeef chief executive officer Francis Grogan, who doubted the competence of ZIEH members to take samples.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka yesterday ZIEH vice-president Chabala Chanda further said that test conducted on samples outside the country may not stand in the Zambian courts of law.
“We have every confidence in the Food and Drugs Laboratory set up by the State as provided for by the Food and Drug Act. Other tests carried outside the country or any other laboratory within the country cannot stand in our courts of law but are welcome for verification,” he said.
On Friday Zambeef CEO announced that his company had commenced independent tests on withdrawn products at Bamora Livestock Research centre and Eurofin Group, an international group of laboratories head quartered in Luxemburg with 180 sites in 35 countries.
