Police in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam have busted a facility that traded and processed more than 2.2 metric tons of dead chickens for food production.

Environmental police under the provincial Department of Public Security, in coordination with veterinarians and authorities in Trang Dai Ward, Bien Hoa City, inspected a poultry slaughterhouse owned by 44-year-old Tran Thi Ngoc Thuong on Wednesday evening.

At the time of inspection, four employees were transferring dead chickens from a truck to a 150-square-meter area inside the facility.

The chickens were about to be put into a rotating cage to remove their feathers.

During a working session with local authorities, Thuong said she had operated her facility for over a month.

The dead chickens were bought from an unidentified woman in Dinh Quan District, Dong Nai at VND4,000 (US$0.16) per kilogram.

After preliminary processing, the chickens would then be sold to sausage making facilities in Dong Nai and Ho Chi Minh City.

Officers said they had confiscated more than 2.2 metric tons of dead chickens with stench from the slaughterhouse.

They also booked Thuong for running a poultry slaughterhouse without a license and for slaughtering and trading in dead animals.

The dead chickens will be disposed of in accordance with regulations.
