Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar yesterday said she will direct all concerned agencies to conduct a thorough investigation on a report regarding the dumping of several boxes of expired multiple micronutrient powder that was discovered amid bushes in Sta. Maria last Saturday morning.

The dumping of the expired multiple micronutrient powder was brought to the attention of Mayor Beng by RMN Zamboanga reporter Parson Delos Reyes during the mayor’s regular press briefing yesterday.

Another reporter, Jung-Jung Cabato of DXVP, was the one who discovered several boxes containing micronutrient powder dumped on bushes near the Sta. Maria Police Station.

Cabato said that based on the written information on the boxes, it appeared that the contents were already expired.

Delos Reyes asked Mayor Beng if it was proper for the food items to be disposed that way..

The mayor said she will take action by directing agencies to investigate to determine who is responsible for the dumping of the expired commodities. – Dan Toribio Jr.
