Following a tip-off from the public, a market management team raided a private slaughterhouse in Gia Kiem Commune of Thong Nhat District in Dong Nai Province and seized around 1.2 tons of rotten pork stacked in fridges for future consumption.
Nguyen Thi Thuy Ngoc, 31, the owner of the slaughterhouse was unable to produce any legal documents for the rotten pork consignment.
Ngoc told the police that she had bought the pork from farms in Thong Nhat District and planned to sell it in the markets in Ho Chi Minh City and the southern province of Binh Duong.
The market management team fined her and took away all the pork meat.
Later the Department of Animal Health in the district will destroy all the seized rotten pork.
