Malta clamps down on food transport temperature control

Valletta, Malta: The Health Inspectorate Services within the Environmental Health Directorate of the Superintendence of Public Health has reminded food companies not to accept any foodstuffs that may have been rendered unfit for human consumption by the interruption of the cold chain.

The warning, to control suppliers and carry out “goods inwards checks” follows intensive investigations carried out last week by the Port Health Services, a unit within the Directorate, in a joint exercise with the Customs Department, Veterinary Services, VAT Department and assisted by the police and Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority.

According to The Malta Independent Online, a vehicle arriving from Sicily carrying foodstuffs was followed and inspected. A total of 100kg of fresh vegetable salads and 172.8kg ready-made sandwiches were withheld and later destroyed as the products were not at the correct temperature.
