During November a seizure of unsound tinned foods was
made from a stall holder in a street market. This consisted of
eight tins of Pilchards and 37 tins of various fruits. Following
condemnation by a Magistrate, proceedings were instituted for
exposing these for sale and also for selling two cartons of biscuits
also unfit for food. A total of £50 penalties was imposed by the
Stipendiary Magistrate.
