A survey has found that 22 supermarkets in Fiji have been selling expired meat, rotten fruits and vegetables.

The Consumer Council is now urging consumers to check the quality of meat products and the hygiene of its storage before purchasing meat, fruits and vegetables.

Council CEO Seema Shandil told Fijivillage they are now more focused on supermarkets selling expired thawed meat, rotten fruits and vegetables.

She says action will be taken against these supermarkets to improve their quality standards.
