Large poultry fraud in Belgium
The Public Authorities in Belgium have tracked down a large fraud
concerning frozen poultry meat. The fraud involves 1,400 tons of meat being several years
The meat was - by train - on its way to the Ukraine to
be further processed in sausages and hamburgers in a factory in Dnepropetrovsk.
Ukrainian customs have
confiscated the meat at the border because the Belgium certificates looked a bit
The Belgium Food Authority agency FAVV said
there are no clues that a Belgium company is responsible for the fraud. It
also denies that the poultry dates back from the 1999 Beglium dioxin scare.Subscribe here to the
