Last Friday, the Federal Police of Brazil launched the police operation “Carne Fraca” with the aim of dismantling a criminal organisation that involves, presumably, federal health inspectors and food industries entrepreneurs.

After two years of investigations, this operation, the most important one ever carried out by the Federal Police in its history, detected that the Regional Directorates of the Ministry of Agriculture of Paraná, Minas Gerais and Goiás were acting by favouring companies at the expense of the public interest. Allegedly, the civil servants accepted bribes in exchange for facilitating the production of adulterated food and the issuance of health certificates without any kind of supervision.

According to the data published by the Ministry of Agriculture, the operation could affect 18 companies that produce meat and meat products (beef, pork, horse meat and fowl, meat and bone meal, milk and dairy products, honey and apicultural products). Some of these products were exported to third countries.
