Food inspectors find fodder used in traditional crackers


(ANSA) - Bari, October 8 - Italian food inspectors last
month seized 2,700 packages of traditional southern Italian
crackers made with parasite-ridden horse-fodder, the inspection
authority said Monday.
The discovery was made during a routine inspection on
September 19 of a company in Corato, a town on Italy's heel. The
company specializes in the region's "O" shaped cracker called
"taralli", usually made from flour, olive oil, wine and salt.
Inspectors found the company made its taralli with a grade
of bran approved for animal feed - some of which was infested
with parasites.
The owner of the company, from Corato, faces charges
related to commercializing a fake product, selling toxic food,
and using inadequately conserved or sub-quality ingredients.
