Draft Decision of Council of Ministers “On dangerous imitations” (2 pages, available in Albanian language).
This Draft Decision decides to prohibit the marketing, import and either manufacture or export of dangerous imitations in the Republic of Albania, which, appearing to be other than they are, endanger the health or safety of consumers.
The objective of this Draft Decision, “Dangerous imitation”, is for the products which, although not foodstuffs, possess a form, odour, colour, appearance, packaging, labelling, volume or size, such that it is likely that consumers, especially children, will confuse them with foodstuffs and in consequence place them in their mouths, or suck or ingest them, which might be dangerous and cause, for example, suffocation, poisoning, or the perforation or obstruction of the digestive tract.
