Investigate the distribution of expired food

2018-10-25 06:03

Dear Editor,

I must take my hat off to Mr Trevor Hatting and the police for the investigation into expired food sold at Spaza shops and supermarkets as a concerned citizen. I wondered why so many people were getting sick.

Health24 (NCC) must be aware that the culprits are the ones who pick up food that is expired and then sell it to Spaza shops.

Health24 and the police must be made aware that this food is cooked and distributed to the locations and to senior citizens.

Their premises must be searched, including cooler-rooms where the expired food is stored.

What I don’t understand is that most food distribution centres are aided by government. They get government subsidies. What are they doing with the money?

It’s about time that a thorough investigation is done on the matter.

This is serious and I am sure the government subsidy is going to personal banking accounts and this kind of corruption must be halted.
