Horsemeat Found In Beef Again

The Food Standards Agency has announced that a batch of canned sliced beef which was found to contain horse DNA has been withdrawn from sale at two chains in the UK.

Home Bargains and Quality Save stores in the UK have been ordered by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to remove 320g packs which were described on the label as ‘Food Hall Sliced Beef in Rich Gravy’ and contained between 1% and 5% horse DNA. This product was manufactured in Romania in January 2013.

These fresh horsemeat scandal allegations highlight the complexity of this European-wide issue and the importance of traceability across the entire food supply chain.

The Horsemeat presence was identified during routine testing carried out by trading standards officers.

The Horsemeat scandal erupted earlier this year when several supermarkets were forced to withdraw beef products from their shelves after discovering they contained horsemeat.
