The Ministry of Health announces the destruction of meat products at the “Maadaney Hachi Tari” butchery at 27 Eliahu Koren street in Har Homa, Jerusalem ​

On 28.2.2013, inspectors from the health bureau in Jerusalem, together with the municipal veterinary department, inspected the “Maadaney Hachi Tari” butchery at 27 Eliahu Koren street in Har Homa, Jerusalem.
The inspection found meat products which were stored in contradiction to regulation and poultry meat which had been ground without the proper licenses. The production, storage and marketing of the meat products this way and without the legally mandated proper conditions may be harmful to public health.
Following instructions from the veterinary surgeon of the Jerusalem health bureau, and in collaboration with the municipal veterinary surgeon, some 6 kg of meat and seafood were destroyed during the inspection.

The Ministry of Health will continue to take the necessary enforcement measures, including legal proceedings, against this food business.
