LÂM ĐỒNG — More than 10 tonnes of sweetmeat without original and hygiene-related certificates were destroyed on Monday in Đà Lạt, the online newspaper Vietnamplus reported.
The items were sweetened dried fruit packed in sacks with Chinese printed stamps, which had a foul odour and appeared decayed.
The owner of the food items is Nguyễn Văn Toàn from HCM City.
On January 10, the economic police of Lâm Đồng discovered this amount of goods at house No 26 on Ngô Thì Sỹ Street in Đà Lạt City.
Toàn said he rented the house as a store to keep products imported from China, which were to be sold in Đà Lạt City for Tết.
When the police checked the store, Toàn was unable to show any papers relating to the food items. The goods were, therefore, destroyed according to regulations. — VNS
