Meat eaters are advised to buy only at recognized supermarkets and butcher shops, Tel Aviv Municipality city veterinarian Dr. Zvi Galin said Wednesday after his office seized hundreds of kilos of unapproved meat that had been smuggled in from the Palestinian territories for sale in the city's Hatikva market. Consumption of meat rises significantly during the High Holy Days. 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 are unknown. Some of the meat was taken for examination and 200 kilos were destroyed. The veterinarian's office said it could be dangerous to public health. The authorities had been investigating for months a tip they 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," Galin said.
