Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala advised consumers to purchase meat and meat products from National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) accredited or LGU registered slaughterhouses and meat shops to avoid "hot" and "double-dead" meat.

Meat is classified as hot if it was not slaughtered in an approved facility or did not undergo or passed the required inspection by a qualified meat inspector.

"Double dead" meat is meat that comes from an already dead animal before being butchered and sold in markets. It is not permitted to sell meat from a dead animal.

To avoid hot meat, Alcala said, besides buying meat from registered meat shops and markets, it is best to look for meat and meat products inspection certificate and marks of inspection that prove that indeed, the meat has been inspected.
