VINH LONG (VNS) — The southern Vinh Long Province's market management sector in collaboration with Vinh Long City's traffic police confiscated five tonnes of dried air bladders of fish
The authorities inspected a truck driven by Huynh Phi Hai, 48, of the southern An Giang Province, when it was travelling on National Road 80 in Vinh Long Province. The truck was travelling from An Giang Province to An Lac Market in Tan Binh District, HCM City.
The authorities found 162 boxes containing dried air bladders of fish, weighing nearly five tonnes in the vehicle. The truck driver failed to produce valid papers about the place of origin of the products.
Hai said he had been hired to transport the goods from An Giang to An Lac Market in HCM City.
The authorities confiscated the goods and were waiting for its owners to show up and deal with the case.
Vinh Long Province authorities have advised people to be cautious while consuming animal innards and food of unclear origin to avoid food poisoning, because trading in these types of goods is becoming more frequent as Tet (Lunar New Year) approaches. — VNS
