SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a delivery of raw, unwrapped pork that was hauled into a Northern California grocery store in shopping carts.
The Santa Clara County Department of Environmental Health says it received complaints Friday about an “unauthorized delivery of pork” to the 99 Ranch Market in San Jose.
The agency says it is “taking immediate steps to conduct a thorough investigation and appropriate actions to ensure food safety for the public.”
Department officials are looking into the delivery after San Jose resident Loretta Seto posted images of the delivery to Facebook.
