NTUC Fairprice have confirmed that it carries poultry products from the two Brazilian suppliers caught in a rotten meat scandal, and is seeking clarification from them. So far, it is not known if Singapore is affected by the meat scandal that has rocked the world’s biggest beef and poultry-exporting nation.
The alarming thing is Brazil is listed on the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore’s (AVA) website as a major source of supply of beef, chicken, pork, fruits and sugar to Singapore. Let’s hope we were not affected by this scandal, that we managed to escape another world wide scandal just because we are lucky.
So far, no announcements have been made yet. We await with baited breath.
