Whenever possible condemned food is salvaged to be used for
animal feeding, but in all other cases, the food is destroyed by burning
at the Refuse destructor.
It was not found necessary to institute any legal proceedings
against any person for the sale of food unfit for human consumption.
Thirty complaints, alleging that food had been sold in a condition
unfit for human consumption, were received during the year and
received full investigation and as a result, reports were made to the
Health Committee in ten cases and warning letters were sent to the
offenders.
