CAMBRIDGE CITY, Ind. (WISH) - A truck with a malfunctioning cooling system was found transporting eggs, clams, pig feet and tofu on Wednesday, Indiana State Police officials said.
The truck was pulled over for a routine inspection by a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division trooper around 1:15 p.m.
Where the food was stored inside the truck, the temperature was 77.2 degrees, ISP officials said. The maximum allowed temperature is 41 degrees.
Wayne County Health officials tested the food and found it at unsafe temperatures. The food was destroyed and the company, Just in Service, was cited for having a false log book, having a non-English speaking driver, and violation of the Food Transportation Safety Law. The company is based out of Louisville, Ky.
