TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Authorities confiscated three tons of expired meat from four butcheries in the northern city of Tripoli.

Members of the Tripoli Municipality along with a patrol unit from State Security shut down and fined the shops, which were selling packs of frozen expired meat.

The shops are located in Tripoli’s busy Al-Attareen Street.

Lebanon has in the past been rocked by scandals of shops selling expired meat and dairy products in several parts of the country, which prompted security forces to crackdown on such shops.
