The Mandalay Food and Drug Administration branch will be running spot-checks at factories producing drinking water to ensure production is according to standard. The authority’s deputy director Dr Kyaw Kyaw said those who failed to comply with the standards would be ordered to stop their distribution of the drinking water or risk losing their licenses. “We conduct surprise visits at factories at least twice a year. We check even those with FDA approval. “When we make rounds at food and drug factories in the township, we will also check the factories producing drinking water,” he said on March 21.
