This announcement comes a few hours after the broadcast of a video from the L214 association denouncing the conditions of breeding and slaughtering of lambs in connection with the roquefort sector.

« A complete inspection of the slaughterhouse is scheduled for today by the State services. The conclusions of this inspection should make it possible to determine what action should be taken », he concludes.
