250 tonnes frozen meat with changed expiry dates seized


The Ministry of Municipality, represented by the central inspection team at the office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Municipal Affairs, in co-ordination with a municipality and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (the Consumer Protection Department), seized 250 tonnes of frozen meat whose validity dates had been tampered with.
The ministry said in a statement that its inspection team received information that a meat production factory in the Industrial Area had extended the validity of frozen meat in favour of one of the companies operating in the industry, and that after verifying the accuracy of the information and specifying the name and location of both the factory and the company, an inspection campaign was carried out and samples of the meat in question seized.
The findings revealed that the factory had removed the packaging and the original expiry dates, which were close to expiring, and repacked it and extended its validity for a whole year, and then stored it in one of the logistic warehouses.
The ministry confirmed that, in the context of its concern for the health of citizens and residents, it will not tolerate any violations related to food products, whether through fraud or the promotion of spoiled food or other violations.
