Villar urges DA to destroy 3.9M kilos of expired meat
Sen. Cynthia Villar urged the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to immediately destroy some 3.9 million kilograms of meat abandoned at the Manila port.
Citing reports, Villar said the 5 million kg of meat, which include pork jowls, bellies, diaphragm and belly, in 203 refrigerated vans have been stationed at the Manila International Container Port since December 2014.
The container vans were held due to the absence of the required permit from the National Meat Inspection Service.
Last year the number of vans went down to 158, which contain 3.9 million kg of frozen meat.
