4 Tons of shrimp Illegally Injected with CMC Jelly Seized in Tralok Bek

Phnom Penh: On February 8, 2024, specialized officers from the CCF conducted a thorough inspection, discovering 226 cases of jelly shrimp, totaling 4,235 kilograms, at a seafood distribution center in the Tralok Bek area.

Heng Maly, President of the Phnom Penh Municipal Branch of the CCF, confirmed to EAC News that the contaminated shrimp were found in a truck distributing to various stalls along Street 598 in Teuk Thla commune, Sen Sok district, Phnom Penh.

According to Mr. Heng Maly, the seized jelly shrimp, weighing over 4 tons, were promptly destroyed at a landfill in Dangkor district following authorization from the Prosecutor of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

In light of the upcoming Chinese New Year, the President of the CCF's Phnom Penh branch has issued a warning to all seafood wholesalers and retailers against selling products that pose health risks to consumers.

He further stated that citizens who discover products causing health concerns are encouraged to report and file complaints directly with the General Department of the CCF at the Ministry of Commerce.

It is important to note that CMC (Jelly), a substance some unscrupulous traders inject into fresh shrimp to artificially increase their weight, jeopardizes consumer health and constitutes an illegal activity.
