Irie FM News was told that this illegal meat inspection was recently uncovered in the Brown's Town Market, where several carcasses were seen with stamps, not approved by the St. Ann Health Department.

The carcasses were seized by inspectors.

When contacted today (April 12) Chief Public Health Inspector for St. Ann, Karen Brown confirmed the illegal activity.

She says a search was on for the culprit.

Ms. Brown, however, refused to make further comment on the matter claiming that the investigation was at a delicate stage, and too much information disclosure, could jeopardize the work of the police.
