RCB Seals Unhygienic Poultry Slaughterhouse

6 July 2017, at 12:00am

PAKISTAN - The Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) on Wednesday sealed poultry slaughterhouse besides imposing a Rs. 80,000 fine on two food catering services for making food in unhygienic conditions and has served notices to five marriage halls.

RCB spokesman Qaisar Mehmood told Dawn that the food branch of RCB visited catering services and kitchens of marriage halls and slaughterhouses at Misrial Road, Range Road and adjoining areas, and found their condition unhygienic.

He said that slaughterhouse was sealed as the chickens were slaughtered in unhygienic conditions and they did not have the RCB licence. He said that the health certificates of the workers were mandatory and the owner of the slaughterhouse did not get the medical certificate of his workers.

He said that the samples of the food had been taken from the food outlets and dispatched to Lahore for laboratory tests. He said that the cases would be filed after receiving the test results.
