Entry Description

Bartholomew County: Earlier this afternoon Indiana State Police discovered another hot truck as it was trying to deliver perishable food items to restaurants in several Indiana cities.  This afternoon just before 2:00 p.m. Trooper Bryce Harris was northbound on I-65 north of the 56 mile marker in Bartholomew County when he stopped to assist a broken down box truck.  As he was talking to the driver, 36-year-old Orlando Santiago Rivas of Louisville, KY, he noticed the refrigeration unit on the truck was not running.  Tpr. Harris then called for the assistance of an Indiana State Police Motor Carrier Inspector to conduct an inspection on the truck as well as requesting someone from the Bartholomew County Health Department respond to inspect the food onboard.  MCI Mike Spencer arrived at the scene a short time later along with Aaron Sanders of the Bartholomew County Health Department.  The investigation determined that part of the load included several items of perishable food were on board and the temperature inside the truck was well above the 41 degree minimum temperature required under state law to transport perishable items. 

The health department destroyed approximately 30 pounds of chorizo sausage (temperature approximately 67 degrees), approximately 60 pounds of sour cream, and 15 dozen eggs (both measured at 58 degrees).  The items on the truck, owned by Mi Terra Foods from Louisville, KY, were bound for El Mason Mexican Restaurants in several cities in Indiana including Franklin, Shelbyville, Indianapolis, Plainfield, and Lafayette.  MCI Spencer cited Rivas for Improper Transportation of Food after which he and the remainder of the load (all non-perishables) were released.
