The Food (Control) Act of 1981 is the basic food law in the country and was the first food legislation to be formulated. The purpose of this act is to prevent the sale of food unfit for human consumption. it allows a health inspector to enter premises where food is displayed for sale, sold or stored in order to inspect the food and conditions. The Health Inspector is empowered to take samples for analysis and place an embargo on the further sale of the food. The Director of Health may, after reviewing an analyst's report, declare the food to be unfit for human consumption, and direct it to be sold for animal consumption or destroyed.
