ADULTERATED WINE
Auckland, October 26.
In the Police Court William Charles Schiavi was fined £5 for selling port wine containing red coal-tar dye, the addition of which is prohibited by a regulation under the Sale of Food and Drugs Act, 1908. Mr J H Luxford, SM said it was quite clear the regulations prohibited the addition of red coal-tar dye to wine, and that the wine was sold containing it. However, the defendant was not the manufacturer of the wine, and he had to take what he bought. "We have heard on ugh recently to be chary of some New Zealand wines, particularly in regard to their manufacture and adulteration." he added. "Whether or not this particular dye is injurious to health I do not know, but in view of the uncertainty, perhaps the sooner red coal-tar dye is eliminated from food stuffs the better".7
