HA NOI (VNS) — Hotline numbers have just been launched to receive complaints about hygiene and food safety violations, especially the use of banned substances in animal feed.

It is part of the efforts being taken by the agriculture and rural development ministry to combat the use of sabultamol, clenbuterol and vat yellow, which are believed to be harmful for animals and people.

The authorities will keep the names of the informers confidential.

Once the complaint is verified and confirmed, the informers will be offered rewards ranging from VNĐ1 million to VNĐ5 million ($44 to $220)

The hotline numbers are 08042526 or 0917808113. — VNS
