ZAMBEEF imported products contaminated, but further tests required-Health Minister

Health Minister Joseph Kasonde has said that results of tests conducted on imported samples of Zambeef beef products have revealed evidence of contamination.
Dr Kasonde has told Parliament in a ministerial statement today that evidence of chemical and microbial contamination has been found in the beef products tested.
He explained that the chemical contamination is that of aromatic aldehydes, but that further tests are required to establish the exact aldehydes in the meat products.
He said that this is the very reason for further analysis on the meat products is to establish actual aldehydes contained.
Dr Kasonde said that the presence of aldehydes alone is not enough to take action at this stage until it is established which specific chemical is present in the meat.
He added that there is also need to establish the point of contamination.
