Lawmakers have accused ParknShop of lacking integrity after New Zealand apples it said had been withdrawn following an insect larvae contamination scare were in fact on sale at some of its branches. The supermarket chain last week said the company had withdrawn the apples but a spokeswoman yesterday confirmed that the fruit had been sold at some of its branches. 'All stocks of apples in question were recalled. Only a small amount of stock was on sale at a number of our branches. But we have withdrawn all of them from shelves.' Lawmakers criticised the chain, claiming it had been dishonest and calling into question its ability to win consumer confidence. 'As one of the giant chains in Hong Kong which has captured a large percentage of market share, it is very disappointing to see ParknShop acting like this,' Fred Li Wah-ming, a member of the Legco food panel, said. 'It seems that the operators do not know what is actually being sold at their branches. 'How can the supermarket win consumer confidence when it cannot even confirm certain kinds of apples were available at their stores?' Another legislator, Wong Kwok-hing, said the supermarket was destroying its own reputation. 'It is not their fault that a larva was spotted in one of the New Zealand apples. 'It does not have to tell lies or deny selling such apples.'
