Health Ministry warns of the danger of consuming fish of unknown sources

NNA - In an issued statement on Saturday, the Ministry of Public Health cautioned citizens against the risk of consuming fish of unknown origin in wake of the large number of dead fish in Lake Qaraoun, whereby it has become evident that some are attempting to sell these dead fish in violation of the laws and conditions of public safety rules & regulations.

The Ministry stressed that it is pursuing the matter closely, asking citizens not to hesitate to report any sickness symptoms they feel after consuming fish, so as to follow-up on their conditions through specialists and to ascertain whether or not these symptoms are related to the Qaroun Lake dead fish phenomenon.

It also urged all municipalities and the Consumer Protection Authority to 'work to protect the Lebanese market from those who take advantage of the situation to reap illegal profits at the expense of citizens' health.'
