Fri, Jan 4, 2013, 12:25 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Consumer Affairs Authority says that a large stock of sugar unfit for the human consumption has been found during a raid conducted at a storage complex in Sedawatta, Wellampitiya in the outskirts of the Colombo city.

The stock contained 188,750 kilos of sugar that was to be sold to the consumers.

The Authority had sent the samples of sugar to the Government Analyst for inspection and the Government Analyst's report has said the sugar consignment contained sand.

The Consumer Affairs Authority says that the importer of this sugar stock would be brought to books.

The special investigation unit of the Consumer Affairs Authority conducted a large number of raids last week and took legal actions against several errant traders who imported rotten potatoes and onions.
