Buy souse ‘with caution’
BARBADIANS ARE BEING told to be vigilant in purchasing pudding and souse from unlicensed vendors.
The warning has come from an official in the Ministry of Health who has said that the unlicensed sale of the traditional Saturday Bajan dish was a concern for health officials.
The officer attributed the increase in vendors selling the dish to the economic times, but said people needed to follow the correct procedures.
“Once there is a recession and people are laid off, it causes on increase in food vending … but souse is a very hazardous food and we would prefer that before person start to sell, to contact us so we can guide them through the process,” he said. (TSG)
