Govt bashed for failed supervision of meat shops
(02-11 17:31)

Lawmakers have accused the government of failing to crack down on meat shops that break regulations, despite being criticised by the Ombudsman last year for turning a blind eye to violations.
The watchdog had said officials from the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department ignored practices such as displaying frozen meat at room temperature, RTHK reports.
However, the government insisted that inspections have been stepped up. The Undersecretary for Food and Health, Sophia Chan, told legislators that one shop found to have passed chilled chicken off as fresh could lose its licence.
Civic Party legislator Kenneth Chan said this was not good enough.
