The Ministry of Economy’s Consumer Protection Directorate on Wednesday seized 25 tons of spoiled meat in the Beirut district of Tariq Jedideh.
“The raid unveiled the presence of 25 tons of expired meat at a commercial company in Tariq Jedideh,” Directorate chief Fouad Flaifel told Al-Jadeed television.
“Investigations are still ongoing and the quantity of meat will be disposed of after the authorization of the public prosecutor’s office,” Flaifel added.
Six days ago Flaifel revealed that a quantity of spoiled fish had been seized in the Beirut southern suburb of al-Jamous.
He also announced last week that a quantity of expired meat had been confiscated at a factory in the Beirut eastern suburb of al-Fanar.
