Two supermarkets in Quezon City have been found to sell meat with traces of African Swine Fever (ASF), according to a news report on Inquirer.net. The Department of Agriculture has been campaigning against the spread of the disease and according to Quezon City mayor Joy Belmonte, "there is no meat sold in supermarkets without the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) certification."

The supermarkets have been identified as SM Cherry Supermarket and another one located in Doña Carmen Avenue in Commonwealth, Quezon City. According to the report, the freezers of the concerned supermarkets have been padlocked and the tainted meats have been disposed.

The DA required all meat vendors to display meat certificates on their stalls or stores to ensure safety and compliance.
