TURKEY - Two tons of unhealthy meat and 1,000 chickens were seized in a police operation in the southern province of Adana early on 1 January.

Hurriyet Daily News reports that the operation was carried out in Adana’s Seyhan district after police detected an illegal slaughterhouse under the guise of a workplace upon a denunciation.

Police seized two tons of chicken, which had been butchered unhealthily and prepared to be sent off to markets, and 1,000 chickens during the raid. They also seized several cardboard boxes with various brand names written on them.

The chickens were delivered to the Livestock Ministry and the meats were taken under examination.

Authorities have fined the owner of the illegal butchery.
