KAMPALA. Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has closed the meat section of Shoprite Supermarket at Lugogo mall.=
The suspension followed an impromptu inspection at the supermarket's cold room, processing room and the shelves by the authority’s public health team.
During the inspection, it was found that the supermarket kept, in its cold room, stale meat that is not fit for human consumption.
A communication on the Authority’s official Facebook page noted that the supermarket also had improper waste disposal practices and was not adhering to established meat hygiene codes and standards and had poor wastewater drainage in the meat section which is a source of contamination.
“Meat processing at Shoprite Lugogo will remain suspended until the supermarket adheres fully to the required Codes and Standards of practice,” the Authority noted warning that the citywide impromptu inspection shall continue.
