Demand to name names grows in salami scandal
Santo Domingo.- Business sectors demand a new study on the quality of locally produced salamis, in the wake of Haiti’s suspension of their imports, "because of the mishandled ProConsumidor (Consumer Protection Agency) report."
The retailers and business leaders grouped in Fenacerd and the Herrera Industries Association (AEIH) warn the scandal could devastate the country’s meat industry and threatens the jobs of hundreds of workers.
"A new study would bring tranquility to the population and establish sanctions against firms that do not meet established safety levels," said Fenacerd president Ricardo Rosario, quoted by eldiac.om.do.
Cardinal weighs in
Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez and Wadi Cano, president of the business leaders grouped in the AEIH urged disclosure of the brand names of the salamis in question and avert generalizing which in their view harms those companies which meet the standards .
