33.8. Every authorized person who believes, on reasonable grounds, that a product is unfit for human consumption or is so deteriorated as to be unfit for human consumption or that the safety of the product for human consumption is uncertain may, whether or not the product has been seized, require that it be destroyed by the person having possession of it by giving that person notice to that effect by way of a writing given to him or to his representative or employee or sent to him by registered mail at his business address.
The destruction must be carried out under the supervision of an authorized person.
Any product unfit for human consumption or so deteriorated as to be unfit for human consumption, or any product whose safety for human consumption is uncertain, which has not been destroyed in accordance with this section shall be confiscated by an authorized person and destroyed at the expense of the person having possession of the product as the Minister may direct.
