Pet Meat Found In Canning Vale Restaurant

An Indian restaurant in Canning Vale has been fined after pet meat was found open on the premises.

The City of Gosnells fined Cafe Marica owner Kopikaran Krishnasamy and his company Kalaiamutham Pty Ltd, who will now have to pay nearly $14,000 in fines and court costs.

It is against the law to allow pet meat, other than that in an enclosed package, to be handled in premises where food is sold.

There is no word on what kind of pet meat was found in the restaurant.

15 other restaurants in Western Australia have been fined for breaching the WA Food Act since January 2017, including Belmont Market and Nando's Northbridge.
