Dairy food giant FAGE was slow in notifying authorities that shards of glass may have fallen into its yogurt, the head of Greece’s food watchdog claimed yesterday as a prosecutor said he would investigate the incident. Ioannis Vlemmas, the president of the Hellenic Food Authority (EFET), said that a consumer had reported to FAGE on Friday that he had found glass in a pot of «Junior» yogurt for children. EFET said the dairy firm did not inform the watchdog until Monday – three days later. «After evaluating the results of an investigation into the incident and if any responsibility arises, the appropriate penalties will be imposed,» said Vlemmas. FAGE, Greece’s second-largest dairy company, said it has recalled all the pots that may have been affected when a protective glass barrier on a production line smashed. Meanwhile, Athens prosecutor Panayiotis Poulios said that he has ordered a probe into the matter to assess whether anybody should be charged.
