Food safety can be compromised when buying meat from unapproved sources

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland recently warned consumers about the dangers of buying meat from unapproved sources. This followed the theft of a consignment of meat from wholesale meat premises in Dublin.

The safety of foodstuffs can be compromised if they are not stored, handled and distributed properly and when they are sold through unapproved sources there is no way of knowing whether proper procedures have been followed. Buying meat from such sources can be tempting because it cheaper than a butcher or supermarket, however this could end up being very costly if the result is a bout of food poisoning which can be particularly serious for the young, the elderly or the sick.
