POLICE and health officials have raided premises in Spain where it is alleged that used-by dates on meat products were fiddled.
More than 1,000 tonnes of meat products in ‘poor condition’, that could have raked in more than €5 million were seized in three raids co-ordinated by the Guardia Civil and public health officials in Valencia.
It is claimed that the business modified the expiration dates of products that were returned by the supermarkets to later resell them through other companies in the group.
Six people were arrested and another eight are being investigated, facing charges of crimes against public health, criminal organization and money laundering.
