    LEGAZPI CITY: THE Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) could have inadvertently delivered some rotten food packs for Mayon evacuees which could endanger the lives of the displaced families depending mostly on relief goods provided by the government here. Harry Mayor, camp manager of Anislag Elementary School said he discovered the spoiled food packs from DSWD in at least 21 sacks containing rice, sardines and noodles after he noticed their foul smell. When he thoroughly checked the packages, he found out that the relief goods from the social department given to the evacuees were rotten and unfit for human consumption. The spoiled goods were part of the 22,000 food packs delivered in Albay province on Sunday by Interior Secretary Mar Roxas and DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman. Aside from 21 spoiled food packs given to the evacuees in Daraga town, evacuees in Sto. Domingo, Camalig, Malilipot and Guinobatan and Ligao city evacuation centers also received spoiled food supplies. Arnel Garcia, DSWD regional director in Bicol admitted that his office recalled at least 32 rotten food packs given to the evacuees.
