Dog-Food Pasta Seized At Restaurant

Compiled From Wire Services

Police seized the evidence - a plate of pasta - and cited the trattoria owners for serving animal food to diners.

The citation followed the discovery of 67 11-pound bags of dog food during a routine inspection of sanitary conditions at a restaurant in Ostuni, in the southeastern region of Puglia, the ANSA news agency said Monday.

The bags contained a type of dog food pasta that is popular in Italy. Pasta for human consumption uses higher quality ingredients.
