“The safety and protection of South African consumers are the mainstays of the Consumer Protection Act (CPA).  While the Commission welcomes a precautionary recall by manufacturers and suppliers, we want to reiterate that regular quality check routines and processes are vitally important in order to deliver goods or services that will satisfy customers’ needs. The Commission is monitoring the recall based on its Recall Guidelines and also allowing the supplier to conduct further investigations to detect any further potential risk” concluded Ms Mabuza.
