El Diario reports:
They removed the product from “Vicuña” market
They denounced marketing of “plastic rice” in Potosí
According to a note published in the digital newspaper “El Potosí”, citizens Sandra Mendoza and Carlos Nava reported that in the Vicuñas de Potosí market, they sold rice mixed with the so-called “plastic rice”.
The woman explained that they found that the product had a different smell than the known rice and asked her husband to verify if it was not “plastic rice” and with surprise they saw that the product put in a pan melted and was converted into a portion hard and black as if it were coal.
