Don’t not consume, authorities warn after Sibu villagers dig up buried chicken parts
SIBU, March 4 — Relevant authorities have been mobilised to look into an incident where a group of villagers had dug out disposed chicken wings at a site near Bukit Aup today.
Sibu Division Resident Hii Chang Kee said the authorities would take the necessary measures to prevent the public from reaching the site where chicken wings were disposed by an enforcement authority last Friday.
“We strongly advise those who had taken the chicken wings not to consume them as we do not know its source and quality,” he said in a statement via WhatsApp here today.
He said this when asked to comment on the matter which was reported by an English daily in its online edition today.
The news report said dozens of villagers from around Bukit Aup came to the site and dug up the chicken wings which had been buried a few feet underground following a tip-off on its disposal.
The report, together with pictures of the disposal, pictures and videos of people digging for the chicken wings later went viral via the social media.
Netizens expressed dismay over the act, saying that consuming the chicken wings would be hazardous to people’s health.
“It can’t be good for consumption after being buried for few days. They should not have dug it out,” said a Facebook user, Joseph Setu.
Another Facebook user, Emily Sangan expressed fear the chicken wings might be sold in the market.
It was said that a few lorry containers were used to bring the frozen chicken wings, believed to be from New Zealand, for disposal into a large hole that was later covered with soil.
