Seafood injected with ‘jelly’ found at Phnom Penh market

A team from the Consumer Protection Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate General discovered seafood apparently injected with ‘jelly’ at a Phnom Penh market in a snap inspection today.

The team discovered that freshwater shrimp and lobster had been injected with jelly in order to increase the apparent weight of the produce and to fool consumers at the seafood market located along Street 589 in Sangkat Teuk Thla, Khan Sen Sok, Phnom Penh.

After inspection, the team issued punishment notices and instructed business owners to stop violating the law.
