[브레이크뉴스=배종태 기자] 부산시특별사법경찰과는 28일부터 4월 5일까지 원산지 둔갑행위 등 위법행위 특별단속을 벌인다.

 

이번 단속은 최근 국내 농수산물의 가격 상승으로 수입 농수산물을 국내산으로 둔갑시키거나 국내산과 혼합해 국내산으로 속여 판매하는 등의 소비자기만 행위를 사전에 차단하기 위해 실시한다.

 

대상은 수입 농수산물을 취급하는 식품제조·가공업소, 횟집 등 일반음식점, 농산물 도·소매업소 등을 중점적으로 실시한다.

 

주요 단속 내용은 ▲일본산 수산물을 비롯한 농수산물의 원산지를 거짓(혼동) 표시하는 행위 ▲수입산과 국내산을 혼합했음에도 원산지를 국내산으로 거짓 표시하는 행위 ▲수입 농수산물의 표시기준 준수 여부 ▲소비기한 경과 제품의 제조·판매 목적 보관 행위 등이다.

 

또한, 육안으로 원산지 구별이 어려운 새우젓, 들깨, 양파 등에 대해서는 단속 효과를 높이기 위해 농수산물품질관리원 등 전문기관과의 연계 검사를 통한 과학적 단속기법을 활용해 위법행위를 적발할 계획이다.

 

이번 특별단속에서 위법 사항이 적발된 업체에 대해 ▲원산지를 거짓 또는 혼동 표시한 경우에는 '농수산물의 원산지 표시 등에 관한 법률'에 따라 7년 이하의 징역 또는 1억 원 이하의 벌금이 부과된다.

 

▲수입 농수산물의 표시기준을 위반한 경우에는 '식품 등의 표시·광고에 관한 법률'에 따라 3년 이하의 징역 또는 3천만 원 이하의 벌금이 부과된다.

 

▲소비기한 경과 제품 제조·판매 목적 보관의 경우에는 「식품위생법」에 따라 3년 이하의 징역 또는 3천만 원 이하의 벌금이 부과된다.

 

한편, 특별사법경찰과는 식품수사팀(식품: 051-888-3091, 원산지: 051-888-3095)으로 불법행위에 대한 시민의 제보를 받고 있다.

The Busan City Special Judicial Police Department will carry out a special crackdown on illegal activities such as misrepresentation of origin from the 28th to April 5th.

 

Due to the recent rise in prices of domestic agricultural and marine products, this crackdown is being carried out to prevent acts of consumer deception, such as disguising imported agricultural and marine products as domestic products or mixing them with domestic products and selling them as domestic products.

 

The targets will focus on food manufacturing and processing businesses that handle imported agricultural and marine products, general restaurants such as raw fish restaurants, and agricultural wholesale and retail businesses.

 

The main crackdowns are ▲Acts of falsely (confusingly) indicating the country of origin of agricultural and marine products, including Japanese marine products ▲Acts of falsely indicating the country of origin as domestic even when imported and domestic products are mixed ▲Compliance with labeling standards for imported agricultural and marine products ▲Products whose expiration date has passed Storage activities for manufacturing and sales purposes, etc.

 

In addition, in order to increase the effectiveness of crackdowns on salted shrimp, perilla seeds, and onions whose origins are difficult to distinguish with the naked eye, we plan to use scientific crackdown techniques through joint inspections with specialized organizations such as the Agricultural and Fishery Products Quality Management Service to detect illegal activities.

 

In this special crackdown, companies found to have violated the law will be subject to imprisonment for up to 7 years or a fine of up to 100 million won in accordance with the 'Act on Labeling of Origin of Agricultural and Fishery Products' if the country of origin is falsely or confusingly indicated.

 

▲If the labeling standards for imported agricultural and fishery products are violated, a prison sentence of up to 3 years or a fine of up to 30 million won will be imposed in accordance with the 'Act on Labeling and Advertising of Food, etc.'.

 

▲In the case of storing a product after its expiration date for the purpose of manufacturing or selling, a prison sentence of up to 3 years or a fine of up to 30 million won is imposed under the 'Food Sanitation Act'.

 

Meanwhile, the Special Judicial Police Department's Food Investigation Team (Food: 051-888-3091, Origin: 051-888-3095) receives reports from citizens about illegal activities.
