A Jamaican man who was allegedly fired after refusing to package flour that was infested by rats went public to expose the unhygienic practices of the Betta Value Supermarket in Old Harbour.
The viral video shows the insides of the food establishment with bags of flour partly bitten. The voice of a man claiming to be an ex-employee detailed what transpired. He stated that after he informed the ‘Chiney’ of his discovery with the flour, he was told to weigh it regardless.
“Afta me tell the Chiney dem seh rat bite it and him a seh fi weigh it and sell the people dem right round Betta Value, Old Harbour and tru mi seh me nah weigh it dem fire me and get other yute fi weigh it,” he said.
Soon after, the video transitioned to show goods on the outside being unloaded onto a van. This reportedly stems from the supermarket being infiltrated with members from the South West St. Catherine Health Department.
A woman’s voice in the background thanked the swift response from the health authorities and remarked, “Dem left come from China fi kill Jamaican people, dem not killing no more body a Jamaica.”
Unconfirmed reports are that the supermarket was closed down.
