Food Safety Breach Spotted in Delivery Van

06 November 2013

COSTA RICA – Batches of cheese, sausages and vacuum packed meat products have been intercepted by food safety authorities due to unsanitary transport conditions on route to retailers.

Inspectors found broken and inadequate coolers in a delivery van and 100 kilos worth of sausage meat in ‘advanced stages of decomposition’.

Lack of ice refrigeration placed the storage in breach of national food safety and security guidelines.

The shipment, which consisted of 170 kg of cheese, 295 kg of sausages, 18 kilos of vacuum packed meats and 100 kilos of rotted sausage, was disposed at a landfill site.
