Vet sees Roxas City abattoir dilapidated

By Jose Arsenio Quinzon


ROXAS City –– “Dilapidated” is how City Veterinary Officer Dr. Roberto Dante Corros described the Roxas City Slaughter House in Brgy Dinginan here.


According to Corros in a press conference, if the budget does not permit a construction of a new slaughter house, then the city needs to provide “a roof and building rehabilitation, water resupplying and retraining of slaughter house employees.”


He said that to reconstruct the slaughter house, the city must allocate at least one million pesos and it will reach from two to three years.


But he said that the City Veterinary Office (CVO) has a surplus budget of Php1.3 million from the slaughter house’s collection from tenants (to editors: ang mga nagakatay sa slaughter house nga naga bayad rent kada magpakatay) and savings.


Since July this year, the local media had been keen in the operation and sanitation of the slaughter house. Corros admitted that the slaughter house is not accredited by the National Meat Inspection Service.


“For my own standard, it is not clean,” he said.


Corros cited that the butchers in the slaughter house prefer to clean the meat in the floor rather than to clean it on the table or while hanging – which was the standard and sanitary way.


“Nasanay na ang mga matador nga nagatuwad samtang nagalimpyo (Butchers prefer to bend over while cleaning the meat),” he said, and “it is not [that] easy to change” this habit “as [if just] lifting the carcass from the floor to the table.”


Corros also admitted that the butchers use water from the shallow well nearby the slaughter house instead of water from the faucet. He said the water supply is up only from 10 pm until 4 in the morning but Mayor Angel Alan Celino has already talked with the Metro Roxas Water District to extend the time of the water supply and to do other measures to solve the problem.


Because of some leakage, Corros said that for the meantime, he let the water line of the slaughter house cut because the water bill already reached P32, 000 during the previous month.


Meanwhile, Corros advised the public to be extra careful when buying meat in the public market.


“[Consumers must] be proactive when buying, look for the mark on the meat and the proof of inspection,” Corros said.


He added that the consumers must clean and cook the meat well to avoid diseases and do not patronize home slaughtered meat because it may be ‘double dead’ or ‘hot meat’.


Eating uncertified meat, according to Corros, may cause intestinal and respiratory problems, and skin allergies, among others.


In previous years, CVO had apprehended hot meats and home slaughtered meats from vendors.


CVO had penalized the violators with monetary penalties and their products were confiscated and condemned according to Corros.
