Warning in Tonga over eating hotdogs

A Tongan authority is warning consumers to take care when buying and eating hotdog, which is considered a high-risk food.

It said the hotdogs that were packed in plastic container in which the name Golden Maple is written on and were sold at retail shops were not fit for human consumption.

According to Kaniva News, the warning comes after some concerned consumers in Nukuʻalofa complaint that they found what appeared to be worms in the hotdogs when they cut them into pieces.

It was unclear whether or not the hotdogs were produced and packed in Tonga or they were imported into the country.

The Chair of the Tonga National Food Council, Mele ʻAmanaki has warned that the hotdogs were not fit for consumption.

“In my capacity as Chair of the Tonga National Food Council. I’m giving out this warning to all consumers in Tonga to please [do not eat] the hotdogs brand as shown in the photos below”, ʻAmanaki said.

The warning was issued with a notice of meetings with Chinese Ambassador at 2pm Monday as well as with the Chinese Business Association at 3.00pm.

The Consumer Affairs & Food Divisions of MCL & MAFFF are investigating the issue.
