The Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) has announced that it will be carrying out a series of special raids during the upcoming festive season, in a bid to prevent the exploitation of consumers.

Accordingly, the programme is slated to commence on 30 November, and will continue until 15 January, 2024, involving all investigative officers of the CAA.

According to the CAA, all major wholesale outlets and warehouses in all districts will be inspected and raided so as to ensure that expired products will not enter the market, while the CAA will also closely monitor all outlets selling clothes, electronics, and other essential and durable goods.

Mobile vendors and other stores hosting large seasonal sales will also be under supervision, the CAA said.

The CAA further noted that in the event consumers have any complaints in this regard, they are able to contact the CAA via its hotline – 1977
