Government crackdown on unsafe meat yields 5 tons of botcha

Baguio City: Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan cautioned market goers to be extra careful when buying meat after a joint operation of the City Veterinary Office, the Public Order and Safety Division (POSD), the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) and elements of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) yielded 4,804 kilos of mishandled, unsafe and adulterated pork meat from the wet section area of the city's public market last Thursday December 18.

The joint operation was conducted early morning of Thursday December 18 as it is timed for the shopping dates for the Holiday occasion and ensures public safety from meat they are buying. The 4,804 kilos of pork meat were confiscated after these were declared unfit for human consumption by the NMIS and City Veterinary inspectors. It was also noted that 95% of the confiscated pork meat were imported. The others were locally butchered pork meat but are found to be either mishandled, double dead or already in the decomposing stage but still being sold.
