Health Minister Wael Abu Faour published Wednesday a new list of slaughterhouses, butcheries and restaurants that have been violating the food safety measures, and another list of those who were back on the right track.Roadster Diner, Kababji, McDonald's, Hawa Chicken, Harkous Chicken were a few of the dozens of restaurants and food shops who had contacted the ministry saying they had fixed the food safety measures and requesting a second check.Among supermarkets, TSC, Fahed Jounieh, Spinneys, Bou Khalil, Raouf Ghanem and Rammal were the most notable that had made efforts in the right direction. However, Abu Faour also published two more blacklists, one for restaurants and supermarkets and the other for slaughterhouses.As for the Karantina slaughterhouse that was shut down last week, Abu Faour said an alternative should be found, saying the facility violated both legal and the Islamic standards, which meant the meat coming from it was not halal.
