LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – In an update to our story about food trucks suspected of delivering food unfit for human consumption, another truck has been pulled over in Indiana.
The WHAS11 I-Team introduced viewers to this problem in October and they are still showing consumers this is a huge problem.
The latest find was a whole, thawed chicken lying in a box of egg roll wrappers along with broccoli, egg roll filling and cabbage all unfit for consumption due to unsafe handling and cross contamination.
It’s just the latest truckload of spoiled food confiscated and destroyed by the health department in a partnership with Indiana State Police.
Our I-Team knocked on doors in the fall after we learned 25,500 pounds of food was confiscated and tossed out over the last 5 years in the Hoosier state because it was rotten.
The ISP, Food and Drug Administration, Indiana State Department of Health and Vehicle Enforcement have now amped up patrols designed to get that food off the streets before it makes it to a restaurant near you.
This latest batch of bad food was found in a truck on I-74 in Ripley County headed towards Indianapolis.
A state trooper noticed brown liquid running underneath the back door of the truck and onto the ground.
More than 200 pounds of this foul food was headed to Chinese restaurants in Moorsville, Avon, Plainfield and Indianapolis. All of it was destroyed as a result of the inspection.
