Meat shop selling unhealthy meat

Posted by Anup Baral October 01, 2016 :
The government failure to implement Livestock Slaughterhouse and Meat Checking Act-2055 BS has caused the mismanagement of the meat market. The ACT has provision to check the livestock’s health before being slaughtered. If the meat is hygienic, it needs to be kept in deep fridge for 24 hours before being sold. Only the meat stored in deep fridge can be cold. But most of the meat shops and slaughterhouses in Narayangadh have failed to meet even the minimum standards. Sanitation is lacking in most of the shops. Consumers’ Rights Protection Forum Chitwan Chairman Sailendra Kumar Shrestha said that construction of well-managed slaughterhouse would help improve the meat quality.
