Meat sellers booked for cheating buyers | Visakhapatnam News

Visakhapatnam: Legal metrology personnel appealed to consumers to become aware of cheating at many meat shops in Anakapalle in Vizag district. Many meat tradershave been putting electronic weighing machines in litre mode instead of grams mode, which leads to lesser weight of meat bought by consumers. Officials from the legal metrology department and Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation raided meat shops at various places in Anakapalle Town and registered eight cases after they found that traders manipulated weighing machines and cheated customers. Officials also sealed one meat shop for allegedly selling red meat mixed with beef at Mallaveedhi. PV Ranga Reddy assistant controller of legal metrology department, who led the raid after receiving complaints, said the raids were conducted on meat shops located in Nehru Chowk, Woodpeta, Vijayaramarajupeta, Mallaveedhi, and a few other areas in Anakapalle.
