Italian police have seized 3,200 kilograms of potentially toxic, cut–price bread that underground bakeries were selling to consumers and restaurant owners in the Naples area, local media said Monday.

Some of the bread was cooked using wood with traces of paint and nails, making the finished product dangerous for human consumption.

Police closed down 17 illegal bakeries and requested the start of legal proceedings against about 50 people for breaching health and safety and retailing regulations.DPA
