NEWS – Horse meat scandal continues

Caledonian TV

A group of MP’s has criticised the government’s response to the horse meat scandal and dubbed their actions as “flat-footed”.

Ministers are insisting there are no health risks despite the Commons Environment, Food and Rural Committee expressing concerns.

The committee believe that if criminals are passing off horsemeat as beef then it is unlikely adequate hygiene levels are being met.

They believe the public has been “cynically and systematically duped” to allow businesses to make higher profits.

The Food Standards Agency has said all horses slaughtered in the UK must have a negative test for bute before entering the food chain from this week onwards.
