NCDC Health Inspectors

Inspectors respond to food complaint, warn shop

The inspectors were responding to a complaint posted on a Facebook group, where it was alleged that the shop was serving fried garlic flour balls that contained rat droppings.

It was also alleged that the shop owner refused to refund the complainant – something which the shop manager, Kili Lin, denied.

Health Inspector Mathew Laba said they did a thorough investigation and made recommendation to the shop owner to improve the conditions identified as unhygienic and safe haven for rats and other insects.

Containers to be condemned by health inspectors

They were shipped to Port Moresby from the Pacific Industries factory in East New Britain Province, said NCDC.

“It was found that the beverage stocks were damaged during its transportation through which they came into direct contact with sea water.

“The condemnation was made possible following the beverage manufacturer who voluntarily contacted the division to inspect and supervise the proper and safe destruction of these beverages.”
