As pressure swelled, officials to come clean on tainted salami

Santo Domingo.- After months of mounting pressure to come clean, the Public Health Ministry on Wednesday announced it will publish the results of the study conducted on salamis in the next few days.

Public Health minister Freddy Hidalgo said that type of sausage was subjected to microbiology and biochemical analyses, and then sent to an international lab to confirm results.

The scandal had pitted Public Health, and the Norms and Measurements Agency (Digenor) against the Consumer Protection Agency (Proconsumidor), which called for tests on salami after last year;s complaints that they were tainted with fecal coliform, were low in protein and other threats to health.
