32 kg Vietnamese pork seized from grocery store in Hsinchu 竹市中盤商進口越南肉製品 全沒入銷毀

Task forces found 18 of 32 kg of pork products tested positive for African swine fever in the latest crackdown.


Presenter: On Aug. 31, National Immigration Agency agents inspected a Vietnamese grocery store in Hsinchu and seized 32 kilograms of Vietnamese pork products. By weight, over half of the products tested positive for African swine fever.

National Immigration Agency agents inspected this Vietnamese grocery store in Hsinchu on Aug. 31 and seized 32 kilograms of Vietnamese pork products, including 28 packs of ham, eight packs of cartilage, 27 packs of shrimp rolls, and two containers of pork rinds. The ham and cartilage later tested positive for African swine fever.

Fan Yu-cheng, Hsinchu Task Force Captain:” The store is operated by a Taiwanese man surnamed Lin and his Vietnamese wife, surnamed Nguyen. When our team searched the store, we found 32 kilograms of pork products from Vietnam including 14 kilograms of Vietnamese ham and four kilograms of Vietnamese cartilage. Eighteen of the 32 kilograms tested positive for African swine fever. We don't know at this point if this case is connected to the New Taipei City case.” 

The Hsinchu task force says stores should not sell meat products of unknown origin, and warned that violators face up to seven years in prison and up to NT$3 million in fines. So far, there have been 16 cases of seized products testing positive for African swine fever. The government is now inspecting hog farms, starting with smaller farms that have fewer than 100 hogs. The maximum fine for bringing or importing meat products into Taiwan is NT$1 million.
