25 tons of almonds seized in Alicante due to dangerous toxins

In a joint operation of the Guardia Civil and the Tax Agency this Saturday, 25 tons of almonds with very dangerous toxins were seized in Alicante. Three Spanish nationals and one Dutch citizen were arrested. They were detained for the alleged crimes of forgery of documents and against public health.

Once the almonds arrived in Alicante, an analysis of said fruit was carried out by officials from the Foreign Health Department. Very high levels of aflatoxins were revealed by the results of the tests. These are very toxic fungi that are harmful for human consumption. The importer of the shipment of almonds was subsequently informed that they had to be destroyed.
