Authorities have shuttered a sausage stall in Orussey Market that was linked to a factory earlier raided in Kampong Speu province for producing tainted products.
Touch Yuthea, the Counter Counterfeit Committee’s deputy secretariat, said yesterday that 100 tonnes of sheep and pig intestines, and chemical substances, were seized from the factory on Wednesday.
Mr Yuthea said the factory owner is a Chinese national who has not yet been identified.
But Mr Yuthea said authorities discovered that the factory was supplying a stall in the market and then went to shut it down, failing to detain its Cambodian operator.
“We closed the stall temporarily because we want to summon the vendor to clarify things in order for us to finish this case,” he said. “I want to arrest the person also to be punished according to the law.”
On Wednesday, Kampong Speu provincial police chief Sam Samoun said the factory was using substances harmful to human health..
“These raw materials are taken from markets in Phnom Penh and some are imported from China. The finished products end up for sale at Orussey Market and in various provinces,” he said.
