Taipei, Dec. 15 (CNA) The public have been warned against consuming sashimi sold at certain restaurants in Taiwan's five major tourism fishing ports, as a majority of them have failed to pass sanitary checks, a government agency reported on Tuesday.

Out of 18 premises at Bisha Port in Keelung City, Zhuwei Port in Taoyuan City, Wuqi Port in Taichung City, Chijin Port in Kaohsiung City and Wushih Port in Yilan County selling the Japanese-style thinly sliced raw fish, 14 failed a joint inspection by the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) under the Executive Yuan and the five local governments, DCP officials told a news conference.

The joint inspection launched in October covered 25 restaurants, they said.

The total plate count of sashimi offered by the 14 restaurants was found to be higher than the standard set by the central government, with two at Chijin Port and one at Wushih Port found to head the list, said DCP official Wang Chih-hung (王志宏).  [FULL  STORY]
