Polish plant accused of rotten meat in sausages
Warsaw: Polish inspectors have halted meat processing at a plant in northern Poland after a television program alleged that it was adding rotten meat to its products.
TVN24 showed footage of green-colored sausages at the plant, while an anonymous worker was heard saying they would be added to new products. Another man said that tons of old meat were used each month, to economize.
Deputy chief veterinarian Krzysztof Jazdzewski said on Friday that inspectors immediately went to the plant and closed its meat processing section. The plant exports to the European Union markets.
Jazdzewski could not immediately confirm TVN24's allegations but said the program showed procedures that violate the law.
