The Zimbabwean authorities have confirmed that they will recall some products from South African company Tiger Brands. This after the company confirmed that they would take off the shelves Purity Essential Baby Powder. The products contain unacceptable levels of asbestos which cause cancer.
Zimbabwe’s Secretary for Health and Child Care, Dr Jasper Chimedza, says the traces were recently in test samples prompting the recall of the products like the Purity Essentials Baby Powder and the Elizabeth Anne’s Essentials Baby Powder.
The Zimbabwean authorities say these products should be removed from the shelves and say they are harmful and could cause cancer called Mesothelioma.
Meanwhile, Tiger Brands in South Africa recalled the products last month.
