QC gov't calls for stricter inspection of taho business

QUEZON CITY, Jan. 1 (PIA) -- To protect the health of Quezon City (QC) residents especially children, the QC government has called for strict inspection and monitoring of taho-making businesses in the city.

In an executive meeting, QC Mayor Herbert Bautista asked city health department head Antonietta Inumerable to include in the list of establishments for strict inspection and monitoring the makers of taho, which is being sold almost everywhere.

The mayor noted that due to holiday vacation, many families are spending time at the parks, their most favorite place for relaxation and bonding with children.

He said that the parks also attract taho vendors who usually prefer selling their product to children.

The city government, Bautista said, is duty bound to safeguard the health of everyone especially young ones because they are vulnerable to diseases including diarrhea and other stomach problems.

The QC official wanted to include recycled or used cooking oil among products to be banned in the market due to the unhygienic process in producing them that could cause poison in the food to be cooked especially for New Year’s Day parties and reunions.

Earlier, the Quezon City veterinary office (CVO) headed by Dra. Ana Maria Cabel had warned different chicken dressing facilities operating in the Kamuning, Commonwealth, Suki and Frisco market to improve the safety standards in handling their products.

The CVO also confiscated assorted meat products including ham, salami, skinless longganisa, and siomai from nine meat processing facilities operating at Barangays Talipapa, Payatas, Sauyo and along Mindanao Avenue.

The mayor stressed that the city government has to strictly monitor food processing businesses in order to protect the consuming public from health hazards from unsanitary handling, manufacturing or processing of food products. “The protection of the consuming public is one of the priorities of the city government especially this holiday season,” he said.
