Pet Meat In Human Food? Known Act or Mistake?

Meat labelled as “Pet food only, not for human consumption”.

Imagine you’re in Australia, you start craving some spicy food. You enter an Indian joint and have a nice meal. A couple of days later you read that the place has been serving pet food to its customers. You are disgusted and enraged.

Well, that’s exactly what happened in Perth. The owner of the restaurant ‘Marica’ was found, by a Health Department inspector, processing meat that was kept in packets labelled as “Pet food only, not for human consumption”. This inspection happened back in February but the owner, Kopikaran Krishnasamy, wasn’t fined until last week.

   

The owner says that he shouldn’t have blindly trusted his meat supplier. You'll say that he should’ve read the labels on the packets of meat. The restaurant spokesperson said that the chef couldn’t read English properly. None of the meat from that lot had been served to the consumers. Krishnasamy was hit with a fine of $2382.30, while the company Kalaiamutham Pvt Ltd received an $11,000 fine.

Krishnasamy released a statement via Cafe Marica’s Facebook page-

“We believe our mistake was trusting our supplier blindly and going ahead with the purchase back in February 2018 when there was an inspection. Since then we have immediately discontinued purchases from the supplier and have stepped up our hygiene practices.

We are truly grateful that no one has consumed the meat and that the inspection officers have helped us save our customers from an unpleasant experience.

We at Cafe Marica hold ourselves at high professional standards as we strive to provide customers with quality food at an affordable price.”


We really don’t know what to think about it. Did he buy the pet meat because it was cheaper? Was the meat supplier try to fool the chef? I wish we knew.
