West Indies Alumina Company (WINDALCO) is warning residents in and around the community of Rio Hoe in St Ann to exercise caution when purchasing beef products.



The warning comes after the company says seven cattle from its dairy farm were slaughtered in the early hours of yesterday morning.



WINDALCO says the animals were treated with Triatics, a substance that is poisonous to humans.



As a result, it says the meat from these cattle is not fit for human consumption.
