Health Department Warns Public About Traveling Meat Sales

warning meat 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/27/13) – Hopkins County Health Department officials have notified the Madisonville Police Department to be on the lookout for people going from door to door attempting to sell meat from an out-of-state vendor without a permit or license.
 
Hopkins County environmental supervisor Barry Franklin witnessed a vehicle cruising the streets attempting to sell meat, said Hopkins County Health Department Director Denise Beach.
 
"We reported it to the police department so that they could be watching out for anyone trying to sell meat without a permit from the health department," said Beach. "Mr. Franklin approached the driver of the meat truck and asked to see the permit and informed them that you can't sell meet without a permit from the health department."
 
Beach said the vehicle had out of state plates on it. A state or county health permit could be issued for business but the meat salespeople Franklin spoke with had neither.
 
"Someone should easily be able to provide a health department permit," said Beach. "We urge Hopkins County residents not to buy meat from someone who cannot show you a Hopkins County Health Department permit."
 
According to the Madisonville police, the health department notified the department Thursday about two vehicles in the area — one a white Ford truck with Steakhouse Supply written on the side, and the other a gray GMC/Chevy truck with Steakhouse Wholesale on its side.
 
For concerns about food sales, contact the local health department at (270) 821-5242 and ask for the environmental services department.
