Authorities Friday shut down more slaughterhouses, restaurants, supermarkets and other retailers selling contaminated food as part of a crackdown launched last week on food establishments violating safety and sanitation standards. Sidon's Pizza Hut branch and two slaughterhouses in the southern villages of Ghazieh and Bissarieh were shut down by police for violating health standards. Police went after establishments blacklisted by the Health Ministry following last week's announcement by Health Minister Wael Abu Faour, who released a long list of outlets violating food safety standards. Tripoli's slaughterhouse was closed Friday by the Internal Security Forces in line with a decision taken by north Lebanon Governor Ramzi Nohra.The decision came after he received a Health Ministry report listing changes that needed to be made for the slaughterhouse to conform to health standards. Earlier this week, the Beirut slaughterhouse was temporarily closed for renovations after failing to meet necessary health and safety standards. Some ministers have even pushed to consider establishing a new slaughterhouse.
