Tonga suspends supplier of controversial hotdogs

Tonga’s National Food Authority in Nukuʻalofa has suspended the operations of a local company which supplied hotdog to retail suppliers

The authority is investigating following a complaint that a pack of hotdogs purchased at a local retail shop in Nukuʻalofa contained what appeared to be live worms.

According to Kaniva News, the complainant was slicing the hotdogs for a soup when she noticed the alleged worms coming out of the pieces.

It was not clear how long the pack of hotdogs was purchased before it was opened by the complainant.

The supplier could not be contacted but the authority said the product was imported from Canada.

Chief Executive Officer for the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry & Food Losaline Māʻasi told Radio Tonga the labels on the pack showed the hotdogs were still edible as the pack was not expired.

Māʻasi said they were investigation to see if the hotdogs were imported and repacked in Nukuʻalofa implying the label looks suspicious.
