Store cited after video shows worker brought in goat carcass

Posted

BOSTON >> Officials say a Boston supermarket has been cited by the city after a goat's carcass was brought in to be butchered.

Boston Inspectional Services says America's Food Basket in Mattapan was given a violation notice after the agency received a complaint following a video of the carcass being brought into the store.

The agency says the video was posted on YouTube Saturday and showed the meat being unloaded from a pickup truck and taken in the store by an employee.

Store manager Austin Morda says he's "embarrassed" by the video and apologized.

A spokeswoman for Boston Inspectional Services says butchering and processing meat for private parties is not allowed.

A formal hearing will be held Tuesday at the Inspectional Services Department.
