The Saudi trade ministry has said its inspection teams have shut down two factories for manufacturing adulterated iron in Riyadh, Arab News has reported. The ministry seized more than 3,000 tonnes of iron worth over SR7m, which was later chopped into small pieces and melted in preparation for recycling, said the ministry. This move came as part of comprehensive campaign jointly carried out by the ministry and the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Authority, which aims to target all iron factories in all regions of the kingdom and verify the conformity of the production lines with the requirements needed, as well as identify any attempts to cheat consumers.
