Butcher in Kuwait arrested for selling 2000kgs of off meat

Authorities also have launched legal action against a dairy plant in possession of 500L of milk unsuitable for humans

Butcher in Kuwait arrested for selling 2000kgs of off meat

An Egyptian butcher who allegedly attempted to sell 2000 kilos of spoilt meat, including dog meat, has been arrested in Kuwait, according to Arab Times online.

Kuwaiti authorities also have launched legal action against an unlicensed dairy plant in Barr Juwaehil after they found 500 litres of milk and 100 kilos of butter deemed unsuitable for human consumption.

Hawally detectives said the Egyptian butcher had been transporting large quantities of meat in a truck, selling it to people in their homes and other butchers at below-market prices.

Tests found the meat was unfit for human consumption.

Authorities also are investigating butchers who purchased the off meat with the intention of selling it to customers.

I got food poisoned a few weeks ago after eating shawarma from a random restaurant in Hawally. I am probably one of many who were victims of this low-life act. I hope they all get caught and all the spolit meat is destroyed before it spreads more. As for the butcher responsible, I hope they punish him by making him eat the dog meat in a jail cell for a long time. People who make a living by destroying the lives of others is inhumane and should be treated as animals.
