Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December .5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Beef consumers warned about uninspected meat CALGARY (CP) Con- sumers trying to beat high beef prices by buying from un- inspected abattoirs risk food poisoning and disease, says Dr. George Summers, super- visor of the Alberta agriculture department's meat hygiene section. He said in an interview his inspectors protect consumers in only 14 of the 90 small kill- ing plants in the province. Buying outside a plant designated Class A by the meat hygiene branch, the con- sumer has no protection. "The consumer could be the victim of a bad animal, bad processing at the killing level, bad cooling, bad transport, or perhaps the home freezer isn't working properly. There is no check anywhere." Canada in enviable position EDMONTON (CP) Vic Henning, recently appointed commissioner of the northeast Alberta region, said Wednesday the Athabasca oil sands puts Canada in an en- viable position as far as energy production is concerned However, he said in a speech to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce that oil sands development bkely will not change the fact that Canada will be a net importer of oil in the 1980s Outlining his duties as com- missioner of the region, Mr Henning said Fort McMurray already has been greatly affected by the huge projects under way or planned, with a ten fold increase in popula- tion since the Great Canadian Oil Sands plant was completed 11 years ago He said rapid development has resulted in a severe shor- tage of all amenities for the town's residents. Hous- ing and recreational facilities, he said, must be upgraded to attract skilled workers SHIPS FORBIDDEN In the 1630s, Japan forbade the building of large ocean-go- ing ships Japan now builds al most half the world's tonnage, National Geographic magazine says Under legislation passed in 1972, the meat hygiene section has authority to inspect any small meat packing plants which do not have federal inspection and can meet "minimum standards of construction and maximum standards of sanitation." Few plants came close to those standards in 1972 so few have been inspected TAKES TIME "It takes time to rake up the money for building im- provements and new said Dr. Summers "I expect a number of them to come into our program in its third and fourth year." Ed Bristow, regional specialist for the provincial dairy branch, predicted that within five years no animals would be slaughtered without inspection in Alberta plants. Dr Summers said small abattoirs gain a major advan- tage by meeting standards set by the Alberta meat hygiene branch if their carcasses are inspected by the province, the federal government will grade the meat This means a local man can bid on institutional contracts, such as for hospitals, which demand grading As low Natural Looking Everlasting m Christmas Six Foot Soft Needle NOELTree Full, graceful branches, 73 tips.
