Methods: Condemned carcasses, their weight, and the reasons for condemnation were characterized by outward signs and gross lesions through frequent inspection of slaughterhouse and monitoring slaughter chain.

Results: 185722 poultry were slaughtered with a live wight of 724620 Kg during these hygienic inspections. Out of these, 3829 carcasses, accounting for 2.06% of total slaughter with overall weight of 4680 Kg, were condemned due to different reseaons; 14 (0.36%) due to synovitis and arthritis, 151 carcases (3.94%) because of chronic respiratory disease, 164 (4.28%) for cellulite,  168 (4.39%) for poisoning, 221 carcases (5.77%) due to ascite and peritonit, 415 (10.84%) while transporting, 816 (21.31%) from septicemia, and 1880 (49.10%) due to cachexia. Cachexia and septicemia were two most causes for condemnation accounting for 70.41% of condemned carcasses and 1.45% of total slaughters.
