HA NOI (VNS) — Market-watch officials and the city police yesterday seized 3,000 packages of frozen buffalo meat that did not have any labelling and expiration dates.

The packages were seized in the Quang Minh Industrial Zone in Me Linh District, Ha Noi.

The authorities suspect that the buffalo meat was being tagged as beef to be used for making workers' meals at the Bac Thang Long Industrial Zone.

The buffalo meat belonged to a company based in Hoang Mai District, but the firm's name remained unclear.

Local media also reported that at least 10,000 tonnes of frozen buffalo meat have been imported in Viet Nam since the beginning of the year, but a large part of them has been sold not as buffalo meat, but as other kinds of meat.

The case is being investigated further. — VNS
