Crysbro acted irresponsibly - Ranjith Vithanage (Video)

Ranjith Vithanage, Chairman of the National Movement for Consumer Rights Protection has slammed FARM’S PRIDE (PVT) LTD, the manufacturer and distributor of Crysbro Chicken.

Mr. Vithanage was referring to media reports claiming that the company has failed to take prompt action and issue a notice after an employee related to the production line was found to be infected with Covid-19.

Adding a video to social media, Mr. Vithanage slammed the company for being irresponsible and urged them to make a statement in this regard.

He has also expressed surprise that the Director General of Health Services had not created public awareness when a leading food production company as such has been affected by the virus outbreak.

He further said that the National Movement for Consumer Rights Protection would hold a media briefing on Sunday (Jan. 17) to create awareness on the issue.

PCR tests, negative

Meanwhile, 'Sri Lanka Mirror' inquired about the PCR reports of other Crysbro employees who were contacts of the infected employee. Responding, Gampola Chief Public Health Inspector Lesley Prasidas said that the reports of all PCR tests done on Jan. 09 have come out as negative. However, it had taken 05 days for the reports to come.
