Squeaky Clean Chickens

SINGAPORE (AP) - In the latest move to burnish Singapore's squeaky clean image, the

slaughter of poultry in 12 markets where they are sold to the public ended on Feb.

28.

Chickens and other birds will be killed, plucked and cleaned at 13 licensed slaughterhouses

from Mar. 1 to eliminate such environmental problems as noise and smell, officials

said.

The poultry will be sent to outlets labeled with the date and location where they

were slaughtered.
