Pesaro, June 6 - Italian police on Thursday seized
800,000 tonnes of toxic Indian soya seeds from organic food
companies in the cities of Cremona, Brescia and Pesaro.
Investigators said the seeds had such high concentrations
of pesticides that they were unsuitable for use in products to
be sold as organic or as conventional foodstuffs.
The police also seized 340 tonnes of Turkish rapeseed and
rapeseed oil that was also contaminated by high levels of
pesticides.
The market value of the goods commandeered was around
600,000 euros.
The seizures were part of a wider operation entitled Green
War that has seen 2,700 tonners of fake organic goods with a
value of around 1.2 million euros seized.
Thirty people are under investigation.
