QUANG NINH (VNS) — The market management teams in northern Quang Ninh province yesterday destroyed more than 1 tonne of food that had unclear origins.

Earlier, the management team in Hoanh Bo District, working with other teams, seized three cars transporting many kinds of products with unknown origins, including pigeons, fish, grilled cuttlefish, peach and jelly.

All goods were destroyed as the owners did not have any papers to prove the origin of their goods.

Last week, the provincial Customs Department also arrested the drivers of two cars transporting 16,000 chickens and 76 tonnes of coal of unclear origin.

The goods were seized by customs officers because the drivers did not display legal documents for these goods. In conformance with existing regulations, all illegal goods were destroyed. — VNS
