Argentinian Authorities Seize Goat and Sheep Meat

26 May 2015

ARGENTINA – Animal health inspectors seized 600 kilos of sheep and goat meat last week from a vehicle contravening food safety regulations in western Argentina.

Meat packages were confiscated by the National Health and Food Quality Service (SENASA) when found to have no relevant health documentation in Neuquen.

The “not enabled” vehicle was on route to Rincon de los Sauces and was searched near Pata Mora.

A SENASA spokesperson said: “SENASA provides such Zoofitosanitarias barriers in order to protect the health status with respect to animal and plant health, and protect the public health of the community.”
