The Yemeni Consumer Protection Association, in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister, Mr. Ba Jamal, warns of the serious consequences for the environment and people from chemical fertilizers. The Association referred to the many complaints it has received from citizens in Al-Sabah residential neighborhood in Sana'a Secretariat, where these chemicals are stored and marketed. The association demanded that effective measures must be taken to remove them from residential areas and to prevent the importation and smuggling of these hazardous materials.
The Association, in another letter addressed to the Minister of Housing and Urban Planning, warns of the abnormal change in various sizes of “Yamani” Milk products with manufactured date 4/1/2004, an expiration date 4/7/2004, and in some products manufactured thereafter. The warning comes following the many complaints it has received from citizens in some governorates, which make these products unsafe for human consumption.
