 Peppers with high level of pesticides from Albania caught in Piraeus

  The Agency for Quality, Hygiene and Chemical Control of fruits and vegetables in Piraeus, Greece, discovered 708 kg of peppers from Albania, which were unsuitable for consumption.

The control of Greek organs has shown that the peppers from Albania had pesticide residues at a much higher level than allowed.

As provided by the regulation, the cargo was confiscated and subsequently destroyed by the appropriate methods.

According to a statement by the Piraeus Regional Union, the inspections and the sampling of foodstuffs will continue intensifying at any time, throughout the food chain and at all points of sale, in order to provide consumers with food products safe and qualitative.

This is the second time within two weeks that the Agency for Quality Control, Hygiene and Chemicals Fruits and Vegetables in Piraeus finds and confiscates pesticide loads above the permitted level of income from Albania.

At the end of September, this agency caught two tomato loads from Albania and Italy, with harmful levels of pesticides, immediately withdrawn from the market and destroyed so as not to endanger the health of consumers.
