HOTDOG and sausage products containing pork, which were shipped in from Luzon, were burned on Wednesday by Cagayan de Oro City’s Anti-African Swine Fever (ASF) Task Force in collaboration with the National Veterinary Quarantine Services’ (NVQS) Misamis Oriental office. In a statement, the city government said at least 52 boxes containing the pork products were confiscated last January 3 at a depot located in Barangay Agusan. The task force also seized another 92 boxes of processed meat products that lacked documents such as certificate product registration, and a list of ingredients, among others. The goods were burned in a vacant lot of the city’s impounding facility.
