Authorities confiscate rotten meat and chicken
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The authorities impounded Wednesday several tons of rotten meat and chicken in a warehouse that supplies restaurants and supermarkets in Greater Beirut, judicial sources said.

Two men are in custody and are being questioned by the Central Criminal Investigations Department about their involvement in the matter, the sources said.

State Security, the sources said, was tipped off about the warehouse, located in the Sabra neighborhood of Beirut. The security organization informed the judicial authorities and conducted the raid, they added.

The move comes as part of a government crackdown on illegal foodstuffs, in the wake of a primetime television program exposing poor hygiene practices in restaurants and other food preparation locations.

Government officials have said they will not be lenient with violations of public safety regulations – some consumer groups have doubted the seriousness of the effort. Three other major confiscations of expired meat and fish products have taken place in the last two weeks.
