This is enough to make one lose their appetite.

The state seized 16 tons of rotting pork, beef, chicken, duck, mussels and other food heading for Jacksonville-area Chinese restaurants and dumped the foul food in a landfill, officials said Tuesday.

State officers discovered the meat after noticing a smell coming from a truck stopped at the Department of Agriculture's inspection station in Suwannee Springs. They also noticed the truck's refrigeration unit wasn't working.

In all, 2,511 containers of food were dumped in the Hamilton County landfill. The food was to be delivered to about 30 restaurants before being seized Saturday, said Terence McElroy, a spokesman for Bronson.

Good thing somebody's nose was working better than that truck's refrigeration unit, that could have had some serious consequences had that not been caught. I've heard some horror stories from people who have worked in restaraunts, apparently sanitation isn't very high on the priority list in some of these establishments.

I would hope the restuarants would have refused the deliveries. I know a few people in the restuarant business and they don't accept deliveries when the produce doesn't look fresh.

on and a totally unrelated note...why does everything happen in Florida
