The National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT), through Provision 7488/2022, published this Tuesday in the Official Gazette of the Nation, reported the prohibition of sale, marketing and consumption of olive oil.
The ANMAT investigation began as a result of a notification from the Bromatology Directorate of the province of Tucumán, for an olive oil that would not have the appropriate labeling in accordance with current regulations.
In the investigation, the ANMAT pointed out that “because it is a product that cannot be reliably and clearly identified as produced, processed and/or fractionated in a specific establishment, it cannot be produced in any part of the country, neither marketed nor issued in the territory of the Republic in accordance with the provisions of Article 9, subsection II of Law 18284”.
Consequently, the ANMAT ordered: “The elaboration, fractionation and commercialization throughout the national territory and on online sales platforms of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil product is prohibited. Brand: Tataglia. Net content: 2 liters., RNE -In process -, RNPA -In process, in any presentation, batch and expiration date, due to lack of health records, resulting in an illegal product”.
