Fresh Frozen Food (F.F.F.) business center, which operates in Paynesville Red Light outside Monrovia, has been linked to the sale of expired frozen products to the public.
The decayed chicken layers, this paper gathered, were imported here in 2016, but has expired. Despite the expiration, the company has over frozen the product to avoid consumers and marketers from noticing its decomposed state.
The Fresh Frozen Food management has designed a strategy in which sticker bearing manufacture and expiration dates are removed from the brown cartoon in which the chicken layer are contained before selling to its marketers.
The New Dawn has discovered that prior to placing the rotten layers on the market; the company had sold hundreds of cartoons of expired Soft Tar Chicken for L$1,550 per cartoon.
Interestingly, the management of Fresh Frozen Food is selling the rotten layer chicken on the market for L$1,850.00, which is the original price of the product.
Our reporter, who visited several markets, including Paynesville Red Light General Market, Duala General Market on Bushrod Island, Old Road General Market in Old Road community and West Point General Market along UN Driver, respectively observed the rotten layer chicken was on sale.
Some market women who begged for anonymity, said that they expected the FFF company to auction the goods but to their surprise, they were buying the item from the company at the same price of L$1,850.00 and L$1,550.00 for the soft thigh chicken.
State security officers last week arrested a businesswoman and a wheelbarrow operator with several bags of rotten fish in Paynesville Red Light.
The woman, during security investigation, confessed that she bought the product from Africa #1 Cole Storage also in Paynesville.
The two suspects were held last week at the Police Zone Five Depot in Paynesville Red Light, but this paper is yet to establish whether they were sent to the Paynesville Magisterial Court for prosecution, including the Lebanese, who sold the product.
The woman, name undisclosed, narrated that she bought the rotten fish from two Lebanese nationals, whom she only identified as Sam and Alee, sale managers of the F.F.F.
