(ANSA) - Bari, October 8 - Italian food inspectors seized
2,700 packages of traditional southern Italian crackers made
with parasite-ridden horse fodder, the inspection authority
announced Monday.
The discovery was made during a routine inspection on
September 19 of a company in Corato, a southern town on Italy's
heel.
The company specializes in the region's "O" shaped cracker
called "taralli", traditionally 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 non-genuine product, selling toxic
food, and using inadequately conserved or sub-quality
ingredients.
