Health min­istry puts ‘dog meat’ scrapped

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Min­istry of Health has scrapped plans to in­ves­ti­gate a pic­ture that has been cir­cu­lat­ing on the In­ter­net which sug­gests that Chi­nese restau­rants in Ja­maica have been sell­ing dog meat to the pub­lic.

“The thing about it is that we don’t have any lead and it is very dif­fi­cult to launch an in­ves­ti­ga­tion without know­ing where to start,” Lundie Richards, act­ing chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer at the Min­istry of Health said.

Richards told THE STAR this week that the min­istry would launch an in­ves­ti­ga­tion whether an im­age of a skinned, un­sea­soned an­i­mal, re­sem­bling a dog in an metal bowl, was be­ing pre­pared for con­sump­tion in Ja­maica.
