The Quezon City Veterinary Office on Tuesday morning raided a poultry slaughter house in Cubao due to sanitary violations.

Authorities said the slaughter house violated several sanitary policies by having its floor filled with a mix of blood and manure and repeatedly using the same boiling water to soften slaughtered chickens.

They also noticed that the comfort room was also located too close to the slaughter house.

The veterinary office said this was the fourth time that the attention of the slaughterhouse has been called.

The slaughter was eventually locked to prevent it from operating further.
