ChinaEatingPRESS RELEASE – The Ministry of Health said yesterday that it is prepared to launch an investigation into whether Chinese restaurants are serving dog meat.

Lundie Richards, who is acting as the country’s chief medical officer, made the revelation yesterday, days after a message emerged on social media of claims that at least one Chinese restaurant in Jamaica is serving up dog meat.

“I personally don’t believe that we should make a pronouncement on it without doing an investigation,” Richards said.

He told THE STAR that a team of health officials will have discussions about the issue before determining the next step.

“If there are sufficient reasons for us to launch an investigation, then we will do that,” Richards added.

The social media message, which has sent tongues wagging across Jamaica, contains an image of a skinned, unseasoned animal, resembling a dog, in an metal bowl.
