Displaying items by tag: Seized Illegal Meat

#dublinport - In a joint operation between the Department of Agriculture and Revenue Customs, FarmIreland writes of seized illegal meat at Dublin Port that took place recently.

Some 3.7t of various meat products were seized as they did not comply with EU food safety rules with a potential impact on public and animal health.

The smuggled meat was discovered when officers searched a foreign-registered truck that had arrived in Dublin from Holyhead, having begun its journey in Romania.

The operation also saw Revenue officers at Dublin Port seize 960L of alcohol and 11,640 cigarettes, branded ‘Marlboro’, ‘Kent’ and ‘Pall Mall’, with a retail value of €19,100 which represent a potential loss to the Exchequer of €11,460.
