VIDEO: Authorities move in on MoBay Chinese store over spoilt meat
After confirming reports that spoiled meat was being dumped at an intersection near the Charles Garden Market in Montego Bay, St James, the Chief Public Health Inspector for the Western Regional Health Authority (WRHA) has indicated that action has been taken to eradicate the practice and ensure that the meat does not reach the city’s food trade.
Speaking to Loop News on Monday, Lennox Wallace said when his team carried out an inspection of the area that morning, they identified a food store in the area which they believed was responsible for the dumping of the meat.
Wallace said the store operators - Chinese nationals – were found to be in breach of Public Health Act in terms of the applicable nuisance regulations, and indicated that they will be prosecuted for the alleged offences.
The chief health inspector said inspection of the store and the area where the dumping took place will be continued, to ensure that the situation does not recur.
Wallace’s outline and on-the scene activities are presented in the video below from Avon Edwards.
