The operation was conducted in partnership with the Public Security Directorate, the Royal Department for Environmental and Tourism Protection, and the Ministry of Environment.

JFDA Director-General Nizar Al-Mhaidat said in a press statement on Sunday that inspection teams seized the expired materials during a factory inspection.

The teams recorded several violations related to poor manufacturing conditions and lack of adherence to baseline health requirements and JFDA standards, endangering public health.

The administration has initiated the necessary legal proceedings against those implicated in the case, Mhaidat said, noting that oversight and inspection teams continue to carry out inspections to ensure that cosmetic manufacturers comply with health requirements and production standards.

The JFDA called on citizens to register any complaints, observations, or inquiries through its free complaints line 117114, the e-mail info@JFDA.Jo, or the WhatsApp number 0795632000.
