Municipalities tighten health and hygiene measures during Eid
Sacrificial animals to receive regular veterinary checks; quality meat to be provided to all customers at the abattoirs.
The Ajman and Sharjah municipalities are taking precautionary measures to enhance health and hygiene standards at abattoirs, food outlets, food markets and restaurants which will be flooded by hundreds of families celebrating Eid Al Adha over the next few days.
The plans will be executed in cooperation with livestock traders and the police to organise the sacrificial killing of animals in the abattoirs as well as traffic movement during the four days of Eid celebrations, officials have said.
Speaking to Khaleej Times, Director-General of the Department of Municipal and Planning in Ajman Yahya Al Reyaysa said this year good quality meat will be provided to all customers at the abattoirs as well as enough meat bags to store the produce. The municipality has already set up a slaughtering plan with traders and butchers to provide best services for charities and individual buyers.
The necessary quarantine measures are already in place to ensure the animals will be available at the market and all imported animals have been checked by a veterinarian before entering the country.
“These animals will also be checked again before being taken for slaughter and the meat checked after the animal is slaughtered to ensure that it is safe for consumption,” Al Reyaysa added.
The abattoirs in Ajman will be open daily from 7.30am to 4.30pm. On the first day of Eid, they will open soon after the Eid prayers and will function till sunset. On the second, third and fourth days of Eid, the abattoirs in Ajman will remain open daily from 7.30am till sunset.
