Health Minister Wael Abu Faour announced Wednesday that trucks being used to transport wheat by day and garbage by night have been identified and flagged.The general manager of Beirut's wheat silos last week said he suspected that 39 trucks may have been discreetly transporting garbage after getting done moving wheat. Abu Faour last month said special markers will be placed on wheat transport trucks to quickly identify them. Regarding the wheat scandal which surfaced last month, Abu Faour reiterated that samples tested by his ministry really did show signs of carcinogens, and that some of this wheat had unfortunately reached the Lebanese market prior to the issue being revealed.
