In a control carried out in the port of La Savina, officers seized fruit that was intended for sale on local beaches. Four pineapples, 35 coconuts and 30 cups with assorted fruit were confiscated.

On Sunday 15 May, three more reports were issued for street vending, another on 9 May and another, the first of the season, on 30 April. In the latter cases, all the complaints were made in the beach area of Ses Salines Nature Reserve. As today, fruit was also seized.

Consuming these products may pose a health risk, since they have not been submitted to health and safety controls. For this reason, islanders are asked not to buy this product and reminded that street vending constitutes unfair competition for Formentera businesses.

Street vending is banned across Formentera.
