Two Tamaraw Fx were seized by authorities in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. The two vihicles where carrying 15 heads of double dead meat or botcha including the three seriously ill pigs. The suspects routine operation is to collect dead pigs from hog farms and sell it to Manila Markets [GMA-7:Saksi].
Authorities are strictly monitoring the illegal meat sellers but they never stop. Heavier punishment should be imposed immediately to stop those culprits. Farms participating in this illegal trade should be closed forever.
To avoid eating double dead meats, buy only meat with seal of approval from National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) and processed products with registration from Food and Drug Administration of the Philippines. Botcha might have sickness that are transferable to humans.
