Taco restaurant closed after dog tacos controversy in Cancun
Personnel from the Federal Commission for the Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris) placed suspension seals on a stand where they allegedly sell dog tacos. It was during the afternoon of this Monday where it was possible to observe the closed mark to a white metal taqueria, this after the controversy generated in social networks by a complaint about the meat sold in the place.
The business is located on 135th Street, between 12th and 14th Street, near the "Jardines de Paz" cemetery, in supermanzana 96. A few days ago, the news generated controversy on Facebook after a young woman made a complaint about having found a large amount of hair that looked like dog hair in her tacos.
In her story, the complainant said that after buying her dinner, she arrived home to enjoy it, however, when she took the first bite of her beef taco, she felt hair in her mouth; she immediately spit out the food and noticed the unpleasant surprise.
The young woman was furious and went to the store with the same order of tacos in a bag, demanding her money back.
For this reason, personnel from the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) went to the stand and placed suspension seals while investigations are carried out.
Suspension of works and services of this establishment as a sanitary safety measure based on articles 393, 395, 397, 402, 404 fraction VII, 411, 412, and 424 of the General Health Law for violation of sanitary dispositions. It was also clarified that it is strictly forbidden to hide, remove or destroy partially or totally the seals imposed by the sanitary authority.
