Alba was ordered to pay more than £40,000 in costs and fines by a court in September 2011 after admitting to two charges related to allowing animal waste to spill from its vehicles and asking for six similar offences to be taken into account.
The local newspaper reported that on one occasion “chicken intestines were described as being a foot deep in places and on another a grey-brown pile of intestines was seen on a pavement near a school”.
A spokesperson for the Leo Group said: “This is not a matter for us to comment upon.”
