HA NOI (VNS) — The Ha Noi police, in co-operation with the city's agricultural inspectors, found hundreds of kilogrammes of vegetables without clear origins labelled as organic products sold to pre-schools and primary schools.
The police yesterday inspected the food hygiene and safety at Nhat Tan Pre-school in Tay Ho District's Nhat Tan Ward.
Tran Thi Dau, in Dong Anh District's Van Noi Ward, was found to transport about 152kg vegetable for the school to be used in meals for students. Dau failed to show proper papers of its origins.
Dau confessed that she was a staff of Trung Thanh Vegetable and Fruits JSC in Dong Anh District. She was in charge of transporting vegetables to Nhat Tan and Tu Lien pre-schools.
Previously, Trung Thanh Vegetable and Fruits JSC had signed a contract to supply organic products to some pre-school and primary schools in Tay Ho District.
A large number of vegetables were seized at Phu Thuong Primary School as it lacked clear origins.
Under the reporter's observation, none of the staff members at the schools checked the bills and the origins of the products that were shipped.
