Burglars steal $15,000 worth of meat from California business
A team of burglars broke into a San Gabriel, Calif. business and stole $15,000 worth of beef and pork products, as well as a delivery truck. Four male suspects broke into Del Mar Meats on Monday evening, using one of the company’s forklifts to load up the meat into the truck, reports ABC News.
Paul Celano, the vice president of Del Mar Meats said the growing concern is the condition of the meat and how long it's been out of the freezer.
"If meat gets to a high temperature. People have heard the term E. coli. Well, E. coli and salmonella comes from high temperatures of meat," he said.
The San Gabriel Police Department urges people not to buy any meat that is not from a grocery store or specialty market. Surveillance video shows that the burglars used a silver-colored SUV, possibly a Buick Enclave, to arrive on the scene. Anyone with more information is asked to call the San Gabriel Police Department at (626) 308-2828.
