INTERPOL-Europol: Meer namaakvoedsel dan ooit gepakt

13 april 2016

More than 10,000 tonnes and one million litres of hazardous fake food and drink have been seized in operations across 57 countries in an INTERPOL-Europol coordinated initiative. Involving police, customs, national food regulatory bodies and partners from the private sector, checks were carried out at shops, markets, airports, seaports and industrial estates. False labelling again proved to be a common thread for all types of foodstuffs around the world. In Australia, for example, 450 kg of honey had been blended or adulterated, and a consignment of peanuts had been repackaged and relabelled as pine nuts, posing a significant threat to allergy sufferers (Nieuwsbericht INTERPOL, 30 maart 2016).
