Among the vehicles checked in Belle-Plaine, a truck had a load which did not respect the cold chain, indicates the gendarmerie.

The refrigeration part of the truck was not working. Basically frozen products were being thawed due to the heat in the body and were stored inside the vehicle. The truck came from the Dutch side and was to deliver a restaurant on the French side.

All products including mahi-mahi, frozen fries, burger buns, jars of mayonnaise, etc. was seized and destroyed by the inspection of the veterinary public health services.
