MONEY IN MILK BOTTLE
NOT NOTICED AT DAIRY
NEW PLYMOUTH, Monday.
Wrapped in an old envelope and placed in an empty, milk bottle, a sum of money was still in the bottle when it was delivered refilled to another consumer on the following morning. As a result of this incident the Royal Oak Dairy Company was fined £1 by Mr. H. A. Young, S.M., to-day on a charge of selling milk in an unclean container. A charge against the manager of the company, Harold Richard Kitchingman, of failing to prevent the con-tamination-«of milk, was withdrawn. Stating that the Department did not press for a heavy penalty, an inspector added: "I am quite satisfied that, having regard to the machinery used, it would be possible for the money to pass through the machinery without being detected and remain in the bottle when it was being refilled."
Mr. J. H. Sheat, who appeared for the defendant, said the company used the most approved methods for seeing that bottles were thoroughly clean. The incident occurred because of a lapse on the part of an emploj'ee.
