According to the official, the poultry farm outlet staff who is of Arab nationality, used to replace the daily share of fresh chicken he received from the farm with frozen ones. He used to defrost the frozen chicken to make them look fresh.

When contacted, the manager of the poultry farm said he was shocked to learn from an MoE official that a sample of chicken from his farm had been confiscated. "We then discovered that the staff had got fake printing done on the confiscated plastic bags," he said.

After the employee was confronted with the proof of his fraud, he confessed to his crime.
