A former food safety executive claims to have alerted for ten years to security flaws linked to the production of pizzas. She was fired for “differences of opinion”
Two months after the massive recall of Buitoni frozen pizzas for contamination, the complaints keep coming. In this large-scale health scandal, a new testimony overwhelms the Italian brand a little more. A former food safety manager at Nestlé, named Yasmine Motarjemi, confided in BFMTV on Monday June 6. For ten years, from 2000 to 2010, this framework evokes practices that go against all ethics.
She carefully scrutinizes security vulnerabilities. Thus, for ten years she alerted the managers of her former company to the systematic sanitary problems of production plants. During a visit, Yasmine Motarjemi notices, for example, that workers come in their work clothes in the toilets, which is prohibited. “And there, lightning fell on me: “why are you asking this question. You don’t understand the business…”, he was told.
Result: the executive was dismissed in 2010 for “difference of opinion” in the management of food safety. For the record, two months after the first reminder, the Paris prosecutor’s office announced the opening of a judicial investigation.
