The SLBS is imploring the public to read the labels of products when making buying decisions. The SLBS is particularly concerned about toys, where labels clearly indicate that the toy may pose a choking hazard and is not suitable for use by young children.
Head of the Compliance Department Mr. Hubert Raynolds says the SLBS will do its part, but the greatest burden still lies with the consumer who makes the purchasing decision. Consumers are urged to make decisions not only based on the price but also consider the implications for health and safety.
The SLBS has gone a step further and has posted for public information the list of products affected by the withdrawal to its website, www.slbs.org.lc and to its Face book page, www.facebook.com/slbsslu.
