Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA] has suspended the meat section of Shoprite Lugogo because of poor hygiene and selling stale meat.
“We moved on to suspend the meat section of Shoprite Lugogo following an impromptu inspection at the Super Market’s cold room, processing room and the shelves,” the authority said in a short statement.
The Public Health Team found stale meat that is not fit for human consumption was found in the cold room of the Supermarket.
The team further discovered improper meat waste disposal practices, failure to follow the meat hygiene codes, standards, and poor wastewater drainage in the meat section, which is a source of contamination.
“Meat processing at Shoprite Lugogo will remain suspended until the Super Market adheres fully to the required Codes and Standards of practice,” the authority maintained.
It said the citywide public health inspections would continue in a similar fashion.
