My Pet Goat Carcass, or: Yet Again, the State Goes After Local Grocer's Baaaaad Meat
The latest suit, filed last week in Tarrant County district court, stems from an incident in 2008, when a state trooper pulled over a Halal's van that didn't have front license plates. Inside, the trooper discovered a pile of 148 goat carcasses that were, to say the least, improperly stored and entirely unrefrigerated. The trooper ordered the van back to the warehouse so health inspectors could give it a more thorough once-over. Problem is, says the suit, when the van pulled into Halal's a short time later, most of the goats were missing and unaccounted for; so too "associated hearts and livers." Where did they wind up? A handful of area supermarkets, most likely.
