The method of disposal of food surrendered or condemned as unsound
Animal products, where practicable, were released to firms specialising in
the manufacture of glue and similar commodities, and from whom satisfactory
guarantees as to disposal have been obtained. As an additional precaution,
unfit meat is stained.
Some food waste which was suitable, was diverted to approved sources for
utilisation as pig food.
The balance was disposed of by the Food Inspectors at Falcon Wharf, by
agreement with the Greater London Council Public Health Engineering
Department.
