Taiz- Health Environment Division in Al-Qahera Province continues its intensive campaign headed by Mr. Tareq Al-Ashwal and supervised by Eng. Ahmed Al-Ramemah, targeting grocery stores and mineral water shops in the province. Quantities of imported spoiled and expired food materials have been removed from shops' shelves. Worms were also found inside water tanks used for distilled water, and since they are made of iron or zinc susceptible to corrosion and a potential risk of poisoning. The Health Division has issued warrants to replace tanks with fiberglass tanks, a substance resistant to corrosion.
