Food scandal in Poland: VIDEO Slaughterhouse kills cows, meat can also be in Slovakia

The Polish police are investigating a slaughterhouse suspected of illegally dealing with sick cattle whose practice has been secretly filmed by TVN24 reporters. British TV Station The BBC reported a scandal that has raged in Poland in recent days. Polish chief veterinarian Niemczuk said on Monday that on Saturday TV will be broadcast on TVN24, revealing "the illegal activities of the slaughterhouse for official night surveillance."

The TVN24 TV reporter obviously seized the cows he had brought to the slaughterhouse, often even on his feet. Many of them had injuries to their limbs or spine, but they were not even with tumors and severe infections. Workers had to cut the slaughterhouse. If the meat was slaughtered after slaughter, it is not clear. However, the difficulties associated with its achievements have led the Polish authorities to withdraw a number of meat products from the sale, the BBC said.

It is not clear what diseases Polish animals have suffered, so it is difficult to predict what the consequences for human consumption can be. However, vomiting, diarrhea or elevated temperature may be the most common.
