A real food scandal against the poorest is the one that hit France, where the Red Cross and other associations that help people in need realized that the meat they distributed was suspect. Thus it turned out a turn of pseudo hamburger.
The minced meat was something else! What were supposed to be burgers, actually they did not contain a single gram of meat. Since the summer of 2018, the Red Cross, Restos du Coeur, Secours Populaire and the French Federation of Food Banks have delivered a whopping 780 tonnes of fake minced meat.
What do you mean? They did not contain meat but only grasso, no muscles but only skin some animals, all mixed with soy and starch, unauthorized products in minced meat.
The volunteers of the associations became suspicious looking at the color and texture of the minced meat, in short, at the overall unnatural aspect of the product they were distributing. The taste was also not that commonly known. All this made it possible to trigger the checks by the French authorities who unveiled a very large scale food fraud.
Despite being of poor quality, these raw materials fortunately did not represent a danger to the health of consumers. This does not mean that there will be no consequences for the French company that sold the fake meat (7 million pieces for a total value of 5,2 million euros!) And for another company, also French, which made as an intermediary, both indicted.
The first company would have made to produce in Poland the mince of fake meat which then ended up as a donation to the poor. In this way he was able to lower production costs and increase his profit margin. In other words, she hasn't bothered to make money off the shoulders of the poorest.
The scammers face 2 years in prison and 1,5 million euros as a penalty for their food fraud. Furthermore, in a joint statement, the four associations victims of this fraud announced "that they have requested financial compensation to meet the storage costs generated by this situation".
Radio RTL told the French public about this food scandal.
