Personnel of the City Veterinarian Office led by Dr. Charles Oller and Meat Inspector Virgilio Rubio confiscated 31 kilos of suspected “hot meat” in one of the stalls at Sta. Cruz Public Market yesterday morning.

Rubio said the 31 kilos of carabao meat were seized from the stall of Rodrigo Enriquez, a resident of Tumaga.
During inspection, Oller and Rubio found out that the meat being sold by Enriquez did not pass the government slaughter house with no approval by a meat inspector.

Oller said that Enriquez violated Ordinance No. 93-016 series of 1993.

Rubio added that they believeEnriquez had already sold several kilos of the meat before their inspection team arrived at the market.
The meat inspector that the sanction for the said violation is confiscation.

He said that beyond three days the owner won’t claim it, the seized meat will be turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development for the consumption of the homeless children. — Dan Toribio Jr.
