Chicking participating Ramadan food safety campaign

Authorities expect a surge of customers in abattoirs during Ramadan and have urged by residents to abide by the municipality’s regulations to avoid the risk of food contamination.

Food poisoning cases are more likely in summer since the hot and humid weather enables bacteria to grow at a faster rate, officials said.

The advice came yesterday after a one-day seminar organised by the municipality’s public health services department in collaboration with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) on the preparation and processing of sheep meat to ensure optimal meat quality and hygiene.

Officials at MLA pointed out that the top world beef producer in 2012 was the US with an output of 12 million tonnes, with Brazil coming in at second place with 9 million tonnes, while Australia was placed 7th with 2.5 million tonnes.

The municipality has clearly defined guidelines for individuals, companies and cooperatives making use of services provided by the abattoirs in Al Qusais, Hatta and Al Lisaily.
