Food hygene?

Interesting prog tonight about food hygene, which covered the importation of foods into this country. What was surprising was the amount of food that was being smuggled in, in suitcases through customs. Seems the UKBF have sniffer dogs to ID food in baggage, and spot the illegal importation of meat or dairy produce.

There's a long walk from the alighting point to the customs with many a bin, and usually toilets in between as well as bins around the luggage collection point. Plenty of scope to get rid.

Each time I have flown there has always been an area of unclaimed luggage in the luggage collection area. One wonders how anyone can forget to claim their luggage at the end of a flight. Just a thought - maybe some of them contained illegal foodstuffs and the passengers chose to abandon them after the warning aboard plane.

but surely it would be better to tell them before they board the plane. telling them just before landing seems a bit pointless. where are they going to get rid of any illegal foodstuff on a plane, apart from the obvious that is.

Perhaps they are expected to eat it , Sid. :wink::D
