DA NANG (VNS) — The central city's environment police department has seized five tonnes of rotten chilli sauce from a household in Lien Chieu District, which had a stale smell.
The police said the owner, Doan Thi Hong, who was given a business licence in 2012, bought the chilli sauce from Quang Ngai Province to pack and sell it in Da Nang market.
The product, which was packed in a bag and a plastic pot, was being processed on the floor in unhygienic conditions.
Hong said she made the chilli sauce by grinding chillies with sugar, water and additives.
The police temporarily banned production of the sauce and confiscated the product.
Last year, the city's market watch discovered 7,300 bottles of fake alcohol in a shop in Dien Bien Phu Street during an inspection. — VNS
