A joint inspection team including animal quarantine officials and police officers in Ho Chi Minh City’s Thu Duc District yesterday caught a bus carrying 324 kg of pig fat and kin and 6 kg of chicken – all stinking and rotten.

The bus driver, Nguyen Thanh Dung, of central Quang Nam Province, failed to show the inspectors any documents about the origin of the goods.
Dung said he was hired by a trader in central Da Nang City to transport the items to HCMC.
The team made a report about the finding and seized all the goods.
The bus was operated by Cam Van Co Ltd, located in the city’s Tan Phu District.
Last week, two buses of this same company were caught carried 215 dead suckling pigs and a large amount of rotten pigskin, all of which were in the initial stage of decomposition.
Both drivers of the buses had no documents related to the goods. One of them, Huynh Van Thau, of Binh Dinh Province, said he had been hired by a trader to transport the goods to HCMC.
The HCMC Veterinary Sub-department is coordinating with other relevant agencies to consider strict penalties for the firm for its repeatedly carrying goods without documents and violating food hygiene and safety regulations.
