Shoprite Supermarket Lugogo has been stopped from selling meat.
The Kampala Capital City Authority inspection team found its hygiene way below the set standards in addition to having rotten meat in its section.
According to KCCA, the supermarket was found selling stale meat that is not fit for human consumption.
It also found that the supermarket had improper meat waste disposal practices. It also “failed to follow the meat hygiene codes and standards in addition to having poor wastewater drainage in the meat section which is a source of contamination.”
The meat processing at Shoprite Lugogo was henceforth suspended until “the super market adheres fully to the required codes and standards of practice.”
This is not the first time KCCA is suspending Shoprite supermarket meat section over selling rotten meat and poor hygiene.
In 2014, KCCA closed Shoprite Naalya branch and other 14 supermarkets over selling over failing to observe minimum health and safety standards.
