All 400g pilchards cans to be removed from stores

VAAL TRIANGLE - National Regulator for Compulsory Specification has again ordered all stores to remove and stop selling all 400g pilchards cans. This came after the outcome of the investigation which revealed a deficiency in the canning process last year. All cans starting with ZSC29 and ZST29 on top are being recalled because the NRCS discovered that during the process of the sauce filling step, an incision took place which makes the can leak after some time. Meanwhile, the Department of Basic Education has banned the serving of canned pilchards, as part of the national school nutrition menu across all schools. The department has advised provinces to replace pilchards with other sources of protein from their approved menus in the meantime.
