Lantz Meats wins appeal

Steven Lantz and his Lantz Meat Market in Durham has won an appeal, over-turning provincial meat inspection orders to stop processing meat and the seizure of meat products at his premises.

Lantz won by pointing to his status as a “food service premise” which is “any food premise where meals or meal portions are prepared for immediate consumption or sold or served in a form that will permit immediate consumption on the premises or elsewhere”.

He has consistently held permission from the local health unit to operate his seasonal business.

The tribunal ruled that Lantz indeed holds the exemption from provincial meat inspection.
