Meat eaters are advised to buy it only at recognized supermarkets and butcher shops, advised the Tel Aviv Municipality city veterinarian, Dr. Zvi Galin, after his office seized on Wednesday hundreds of kilos of unapproved meat smuggled in from the territories and sold in the city's Hatikva market. The consumption of meat rises significantly during the High Holidays. The unmarked beef and lamb was smuggled in with help from Israelis. It was stamped with the name of a factory where it had not been processed, and its exact contents unknown. Some of the meat was taken for examination and 200 kilos of it was destroyed. The veterinarian's office said it could be dangerous to public health. The authorities had been investigating for months a tip it received about smugglers from the territories. After the investigation is completed, an indictment will be filed against those involved. "We are working to close the store in the market as soon as possible," said Galin.
