The National Drug, Food, and Medical Technology Administration (ANMAT) prohibited this Tuesday through its publication in the Official Gazette, the commercialization of a series of foods.

E / T and Alma Vegan brand.

The reason: lack of establishment and product records, resulting in illegal products.

The proceedings were initiated by a notification made by the Provincial Department of Bromatology of the province of Chubut, in relation to the commercialization of products “that would not comply with current food regulations”, as indicated in the recitals of the document.

After that and after they verified that “the Alma Vegan brand is domiciled in the province of Buenos Aires “, the Bromatology Department of the province of Chubut carried out federal consultations in order to verify if the establishment and product were authorized.

Likewise, “a verification of the records of the emails identified on the internet with the brand” Alma Vegan “did not get a response and it was reported that They do not have in their database RNE and RNPA associated with the “Alma Vegan” brand. The commercialization of different quantities of the investigated products was also found.

That is why the Provincial Department of Bromatology of the province of Chubut informed the health authorities of all municipalities and communes of the facts of that province and requested that in case of detecting the commercialization of the investigated products, proceed to the seizure of the same as well as any product of the brand.

It is clarified in the text that after the Department of Sanitary and Nutritional Surveillance of Foods of the INAL carried out federal consultations in order to verify if the products are authorized, to which it reported that it does not have data from the Alma Vegan firm in its records ”.

In conclusion, it was determined that the products do not have establishment and product records, thus turning out to be illegal products.
