12 tons of frozen abalone and other seafood in the latest such scandal to hit the island’s food sector, reports said Friday.

Following a spate of adulterated-oil scandals some three years ago, inspections and penalties for food safety violations were tightened, but recent weeks saw several instances of food producers and distributors reselling expired products with fraudulent expiration labels.

In the latest instance, Taichung City Health Department inspectors visited warehouses owned or rented by Hung Shuo Seafood Co. (宏碩海產公司) in the city’s Nantun District and found 905 boxes and 73 bags containing a total of 12,290.5 kilograms of frozen abalone as well as 60 boxes of shrimp weighing a total of 648 kg, all of them with suspicious labels, reports said.    [FULL  STORY]
