by Rachelle M. Nessia

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) -- More than 150 kilos of “hot meat” were confiscated inside the Dumaguete City Public Market Building last month by a team from Task Force SAGARR.

The team led by Charles Tubog from the City Veterinary Office seized the double dead meat from three vendors inside the market, according to a release from the Dumaguete City Information Office.

Said meat vendors were caught transporting the hot meat inside the market. When asked to present their papers, the vendors were unable to produce the necessary documents.

City Veterinarian Dr. Lourdes Socorro said the city government will confiscate meat that do not pass through the City Slaughterhouse for inspection.

“We don’t allow meat that are not inspected at the City Slaugtherhouse to be sold at the market as this may cause harm to people’s health,” said Socorro.

Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria assured that the city government continues to strictly monitor the products being sold inside the public market.

Tubog’s team is part of Task Force SAGARR or Special Action Group Advocating Rapid Reform created by the city government to handle the enforcement of ordinances in the city. (RMN/PIA Negros Oriental)
