​An inspection by the Haifa health bureau, together with a veterinary surgeon from the Haifa municipality, conducted on 22.2. 2013 at the fish store “Reshet Dagey Hakibbutzim”, at 2 Gott-Levine Street in Haifa.
The audit found packages of fish of unknown origin and fish products which had been manufactured and packaged under substandard sanitary conditions, without a license and without the proper documentation as required. The production, storage and marketing of fish this way and without the legally mandated proper conditions may be harmful to public health.
At the order of the Haifa municipal veterinary surgeon, some 15 kg of fish products were destroyed during the inspection.
The Ministry of Health will continue to take the necessary enforcement measures, including legal proceedings, against this food business.
