    Thousands of animals are slaughtered on a daily basis without basic hygiene precautions being taken in central capital Kabul where only ten people are tasked with stopping contaminated meat from reaching the food chain.

    A Pajhwok Afghan News survey found that most of butchers in Kabul slaughter animals at homes or shops because only two government abattoirs exist in Kabul City.

    One of the two slaughter houses is run by the Ministry of Defense and the second is situated on the outskirts of Kabul City in Kampani area. It is difficult for all butchers to take their animals to the two places.

    At the slaughter house in Kampani, there was no equipment to test hygiene. This situation contributes to the city’s environmental pollution and poses a threat to consumer health.

    Slaughtering animals without safety checks

    Dr. Mohammad Edrees Tokhi, Kabul Municipality’s Environmental Safety director, told Pajhwok Afghan News almost 4,000 animals, including cows, sheep and cattle were daily slaughtered in Afghanistan.

    “For health reasons, every animal should be examined by a veterinary physician before it is slaughtered, but in Afghanistan this trend is yet to be introduced.”
    ....As livestock are slaughtered and their meat sold in market without being tested, Mohammad Tokhi, a doctor, said that 800 types of diseases could be transferred from animal products to humans.

    He said Toxoplasmosis, Brucellosis, Influneza and Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) diseases were most common being transferred from animal products to humans.

    Dr. Abdur Rahman Akbari, head of Kabul Antani Hospital, said that Brucellosis, CCHF, (Anthrax ،Charbon) and Zoonoses diseases were registered in the hospital.

    But, it doesn't tell you the statistics of the people who have those diseases from the meat.

    And, ew......

    Do you really give a shit if the Afghans don't inspect their meat?
