The Ministry of Municipality, represented by the central inspection team at the office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Municipal Affairs, in coordination with a municipality and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (the Consumer Protection Department), seized 250 tons of frozen meat whose validity dates had been tampered with.

The Ministry of Municipality said in a statement that its inspection team received information that a meat production factory in the industrial area had extended the validity of frozen meat in favor of one of the companies operating in the industry, and that after verifying the accuracy of the information and specifying the name and location of both the factory and the company, an inspection campaign was carried out and seized samples of the meat in question. The findings were conclusive that the factory had removed the packaging and the original expiry dates, which were close to expiring after several days, and repacked it and extended its validity for a whole year, and then stored it in one of the logistic warehouses.

The Ministry of Municipality confirmed that, in the context of its concern for the health of citizens and residents, it will not tolerate any violations related to food products, whether through fraud or the promotion of spoiled food or other violations. Provide them to consumers, by providing advice, guidance and awareness of the sound health requirements to be followed.
