A raw meat
shipment to a Chinatown food retailer in Hawaii was reportedly wilfully fed it to clientele after it fell ‘skin-down’ on the sidewalk.
Department of Health (DOH) was informed of the incident by a passerby who took
a photo of the meat on the sidewalk and contacted the organization.
By the time
the DOH arrived, the meat had already been served to customers.
Market – the offending retailer – had the right to refuse the evidently soiled
product, but accepted it anyway, cooking it and cleaning it before selling it
employees were then reportedly ‘educated’ by DOH workers on better practices.
business is still in operation.
