Dunsford man fined

The Brock Citizen/My Kawartha is reporting  a Dunsford man has been fined after pleading guilty to selling uninspected meat.

The report says Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs officials received a complaint about a possible unlicensed food animal slaughter on Jan. 10th of this year.

Investigators determined that on December 28th, 2017, John Perry, a former employee at a provincially-licensed meat plant in Sunderland, used a key he had in his possession to gain entry to that plant after hours to kill 20 sheep.

He then sold and delivered the uninspected meat the following day to a retailer in the Toronto area using a van belonging to the licensed meat plant.

The defendant appeared before justice of the peace M. De Gannes on Oct. 3, 2018 at the provincial offences court in Whitby.

Perry pled guilty to selling uninspected/unstamped meat in a provincial court in Whitby earlier this month and was fined $7,500.
