Dog-Food Pasta Seized At Restaurant
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.
