A company that distributes and sells livestock products ordered to be discarded ahead of the Lunar New Year has been caught under a joint government crackdown.

Although Korean beef has a traceable history number, it has been found that illegal distributors caught in the crackdown have circumvented the crackdown by changing the history number to look like a normal livestock product.

It is known that the slaughterhouse had a fire on the 17th.

In accordance with the Livestock Product Sanitation Control Act, burnt or charred livestock products are not distributed in the market and disposed of due to concerns that they may contain harmful substances.

Police believe that 40 million won worth of Korean beef has already been sold to distributors.

More detailed news will be delivered on the evening of the 24th at <SBS 8 News>.
