Rwanda Prohibition of plastic bottles for alcoholic drinks

The FDA has highlighted that packaging alcoholic drinks in plastic bottles lead to adulteration as some of those packages are made of chemicals that get re-activated and dissolved in the drink following prolonged exposure to heat and contact with alcohols.
