MAIL torches expired imported veterinary drugs
A MAIL statement received by Pajhwok Afghan News said the 96 types of veterinary drugs included vaccines, pesticides and insecticides.
It said the drugs and insecticides had been collected from nine importing companies and 23 wholesale shops during the past one month.
The ministry during its monitoring identified two companies as importers of fake drugs and referred them to the attorney’s office for investigation.
However, the statement did not provide more details about the accused companies.
The statement said the ministry’s veterinary department always monitored importing companies and wholesales in capital Kabul and provinces to prevent expired or fake drugs from reaching animals.
