Foul load headed to restaurants

A box truck carrying meat that was not securely packaged and dripping onto other food products, including raw fruits and vegetables, was uncovered traveling through Ohio for delivery to restaurants in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

On August 15, troopers with the Ohio State Patrol stopped a truck traveling north on Interstate 75 in Butler County for several traffic and commercial violations.

Inspectors called to the scene observed a liquid running out of the cargo area of the truck along with a foul odor. The truck was found to be carrying open bags of raw chicken and meat, and the liquid contents of the bags was spilling onto boxes and crates of seafood, vegetables, fruit and eggs.

The United States Department of Agriculture responded to the scene and took custody of the load.

The food was being delivered from Cincinnati to several restaurants in northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania.
