Police seize 3,500 kg of fake food


(ANSA) - Rome, October 4 - Six tonnes of fake Sorrento
lemons for sale in Naples were picked up in a nationwide police
sweep Thursday that netted 3,500 kilograms of mislabelled food.
The lemons, which actually came from Argentina, were part a
crackdown on food fraud across the country.
Police in Macerata confiscated 1,300 kilograms of pizzas
falsely claiming to have red onion from the town of Tropea and
tomatos from San Marzano.
Police said they were also investigating rackets for
selling fake food abroad.
So far they have uncovered kits used to produce counterfeit
wines such as Barolo, Chianti, Valpolicella, Montepulciano and
Nero d'Avola, police said.
