Two Women Have Been Arrested For Selling ‘Coloured Oranges’

The Food and Drugs Authority has arrested two women suspected to be involved in colouring oranges to boost sales.

The FDA says the police conducted a swoop at the Madina market last Tuesday after photos and a video went viral on social media.

In the video, a woman is seen with two big bowls – one a colouring solution and the other full of ripe oranges.

She dipped the oranges in the solution and waits for some minutes for the fruit to turn deep yellow.

It is believed the colour makes the fruit eye-pleasing enough to attract customers.

FDA says the colouring is “suspicious” and condemned the practice. The officials have therefore arrested the women for questioning and possible prosecution.
