Tongan Consumer Affairs has warned the public about buying bottles of Tiger lager beer in the kingdom claiming the product’s expiry dates had been intentionally removed.
The authority also warned that the public be curious about buying the beer at bars and liquors and make sure they have their expiry dates on the bottles before any purchase was made.
Photos of the product shared on Consumer Affairs’ Facebook page showed labels which said the “Crystal World Acclaimed Asian Lager” was made in Singapore.
Date marks indicate how long products such as alcohol can be kept before they start to deteriorate or becomes unsafe to drink.
The warning came after the authority said yesterday an enquiry with its office led to an investigation about noodle products which a consumer wanted to know about its place of manufacture and processing.
The authority confirmed the noodle was being processed in Tonga and its packing boxes were imported from Samoa.
The Consumer Affairs also warned buyers it is their responsibilities to make sure any products they were going to purchase were still fresh and safe to consume.
