Update Horsemeat Found in Meat Foods in Many Countries

Updated 5:48 AM EST, Wed January 16, 2013

(File photo) Irish Food Safety Authority finds horse DNA in 10 out of 27 burgers it tested.


The discovery of horse DNA in hamburgers on sale at supermarkets in Ireland and Britain is testing the appetite of meat lovers there.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland said Tuesday that 10 out of 27 hamburger products it analyzed in a study were found to contain horse DNA, and 23 of them tested positive for pig DNA.

The horse-tainted burgers, on sale at several different supermarket chains, came from two meat processing plants in Ireland and one in Britain, the Irish authority said.

"This raises concerns in relation to the traceability of meat ingredients and products entering the food chain," it said, but noted that the findings posed no risk to public health.

In nine out of the 10 burger samples, the horse DNA was found at very low levels, the authority said, but in one sample from Tesco, Britain's largest retailer, the horsemeat accounted for about 29% of the burger. Tesco responded by pulling from its shelves all products from the company that had supplied the dubious burgers.

"We understand that many of our customers will be concerned by this news, and we apologize sincerely for any distress," Tesco said.

The retailer is working with Irish and British authorities and the supplier to work out what had happened, it said.

Alan Reilly, the chief executive of the Irish food authority, said there was a "plausible explanation" for the pig meat finding its way into the burgers, since meat from different animals is processed at the same plants. But he said there was "no clear explanation at this time" for the presence of the horsemeat.

"In Ireland, it is not in our culture to eat horsemeat and therefore, we do not expect to find it in a burger," Reilly said. "Likewise, for some religious groups or people who abstain from eating pig meat, the presence of traces of pig DNA is unacceptable."

Many British and Irish people expressed their distaste over the revelations on social media.

Some Twitter users said they weren't surprised to hear about the questionable origins of the burgers, while others debated the ethics of eating horsemeat.

And then there were those who saw an opportunity for attempts at humor.

"Going to #tesco and expecting a beef burger. Instead you get #horsemeat . Sounds to me like foal-play," wrote Twitter user Matt Oswin under the username @BrushmanLestar.

Unhappy Burger King Chain Admits Food Had Horsemeat

Burger King Horsemeat Scandal: Chain Admits That Food Was ""Tainted""

The Huffington Post 1 Feb 2013


Burger King has admitted that some of its burgers sold in the U.K. and Ireland were, in fact, tainted with horsemeat.

This is just the latest chapter in an ongoing scandal in the U.K. and Ireland involving beef burger patties tainted with meat from horses and pigs.
U.K. supermarket chain Tesco and other companies have also been affected.

It's suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which worked with all the companies in question, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.

Burger King had originally stressed that its patties are made with 100 percent beef, although it later dropped Silvercrest, the food processing plant that received meat from the Polish distributor.

The Guardian UK, has a statement from Burger King:

Quote:
"Our independent DNA test results on product taken from restaurants were negative for any equine DNA. However, four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA. Within the last 36 hours, we have established that Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland. They promised to deliver 100% British and Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them."
Officials have stressed that the horsemeat-tainted burgers do not pose a health risk to consumers.

Horsemeat Scandal: Germany Pulls Lasagne off Shelves

BBC News 14 Feb 2013



Officials are still trying to find out where the adulteration with horsemeat took place

Horsemeat has been detected in frozen lasagne on sale in Germany and supermarkets have started removing the product from their shelves.
The Real supermarket chain said it had withdrawn TiP frozen lasagne - the latest tainted processed food to figure in a Europe-wide scandal.
Other German retailers including Tengelmann and Rewe are now checking their processed beef products too.

The EU is urging member states to conduct random tests for horsemeat.

All members should carry out DNA tests on processed beef for traces of horsemeat for three months from 1 March, the EU health commissioner said on Wednesday.

German authorities suspect a batch of lasagne sent from Luxembourg to a retailer in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
On Wednesday the state's Consumer Affairs Minister, Johannes Remmel, said that "after analysing the data we have learned that through a middleman in Luxembourg, a significant amount of goods has been shipped to Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia, and those goods are suspected, and I repeat only suspected, to have not been properly labelled".
The shipment is believed to have taken place between November 2012 and January 2013.

Comigel connection Mr Remmel said frozen processed foods had arrived in Germany, via Luxembourg, from Comigel - the supplier in northeastern France which sent mince containing horsemeat to several UK retailers.

The supermarket giant Tesco, frozen food firm Findus and budget chain Aldi received mince containing horsemeat from Comigel.

The French firm denied wrongdoing, saying it had ordered the meat from Spanghero, a firm in southern France, via a Comigel subsidiary in Luxembourg - Tavola.

The supply chain reportedly led back to traders in Cyprus and the Netherlands, then to abattoirs in Romania.

On Wednesday the EU Health Commissioner Tonio Borg said EU states should test not only for horsemeat but also for the presence of the veterinary medicine phenylbutazone ("bute"), thought to be potentially harmful to humans.
Mr Borg was speaking after a meeting with ministers from the UK, France and other affected countries in Brussels.
He said the programme of random tests should report after 30 days, but testing should continue for three months.

The scandal has raised questions about the complexity of the food industry's supply chains across the EU.
There are now calls for more specific labelling on processed meat products in the EU, to show country of origin, as in the case of fresh meat. But the cost of doing that may trigger opposition from food manufacturers.

Romania has denied claims that it was to blame for the mislabelling.

Germany's Consumer Protection Minister Ilse Aigner called the mislabelling situation "a mess" and said the EU must put an effective food surveillance system in place to detect fraud. Speaking on German ARD television, she stressed that it was a problem of fraudulent labelling, not public health.





Horsemeat Row: Slaughterhouse and Meat Firm Raided




Farmbox Meats near Aberystwyth was one of the premises raided

A slaughterhouse and a meat firm have been raided by police and officials probing alleged horsemeat mislabelling.
Peter Boddy Licensed Slaughterhouse, in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, and Farmbox Meats Ltd, of Llandre near Aberystwyth, have had work suspended.
Environment Secretary Owen Paterson said it was unacceptable if UK firms were defrauding the public.

Meanwhile, Waitrose withdrew its Essential British Frozen Beef Meatballs after pork was detected in two batches.
They are the latest product to be withdrawn from UK shelves.

The Food Standards Agency suspended operations at both the raided premises, detained all meat found and seized paperwork, including customer lists from the two companies.
The West Yorkshire plant was thought to have supplied horse carcasses to the Aberystwyth plant, which were then allegedly sold on as beef for kebabs and burgers.
Both West Yorkshire and Dyfed-Powys police entered the premises with the FSA.

Peter Boddy said he was co-operating with the FSA officers.
"It was not a raid - they are welcome to visit whenever they want, they just wanted to see my records which I will be showing them," he said.
He confirmed he slaughters horses at his plant and that the meat is sold in the UK.
Dafydd Raw Rees of Farmbox Meats said he had a licensed red meat cutting plant and had been in operation for three years.
"I've been cutting horse meat for three and a half weeks," he said.
"The meat comes from Ireland. A consignment came in this morning as the FSA arrived."
"There is nothing we have done here which is not totally permissible."
Mr Paterson said of the latest developments: "It's totally unacceptable if any business in the UK is defrauding the public by passing off horsemeat as beef.
"I expect the full force of the law to be brought down on anyone involved in this kind of activity."
'Integrity essential' FSA director of operations Andrew Rhodes said: "I ordered an audit of all horse-producing abattoirs in the UK after this issue first arose last month, and I was shocked to uncover what appears to be a blatant misleading of consumers.
"I have suspended both plants immediately while our investigations continue."




Andrew Rhodes of the Food Standards Agency: ''This activity is clearly not legitimate''


The Welsh minister for agriculture, Alun Davies, said: "Integrity and trust are essential in the food chain. I would be appalled if these allegations are proven.
"The Welsh government is working closely with Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) and the FSA to ensure this matter is dealt with swiftly and decisively."
The latest developments came as Mr Paterson held another meeting with the FSA, supermarkets and food producers to discuss the spreading horsemeat contamination scandal.
He told MPs during a Commons debate earlier that "too much is taken on trust" when it comes to verifying meat supplies.
Labour's Mary Creagh welcomed the FSA and police action.
The raids uncovered the first suspected instance of a UK abattoir passing off horsemeat for beef, Mr Paterson said.
It came after the National Beef Association (NBA) suggested the addition of the words "United Kingdom origin" to packaging to prevent "further cheating" by suppliers on the Continent.
The scandal has spread across Europe as details of the elaborate supply chain in the meat industry emerge.

Batches Withdrawn


French consumer safety authorities said companies from Romania, Cyprus and the Netherlands, as well as its own firms, were involved.
Mr Paterson will travel to Brussels on Wednesday to discuss the scandal with counterparts in EU countries.
At Waitrose, a spokeswoman said it had had "contradictory results" from tests on the frozen beef meatballs.
She said all had tested negative for horse DNA, but one test had indicated the presence of some pork.
"We have withdrawn two batches of these products as pork is not listed as a product in the recipe."
The products are 480g packs of 16 meatballs with a best before date of the end of June 2013 and the end of August 2013.

Default Re: Horsemeat Found in Meat Foods in Many Countries

They found the guy who did this, I watched it on the news this morning. I'll see if I can find it.

Three arrested in UK Horse meat probe

The men were arrested at plants in West Yorkshire that were inspected on Tuesday by the Food Standards Agency.

A police spokesman said: "Dyfed-Powys Police have today made arrests at both meat plants inspected by the Food Standards Agency on Tuesday.

"At Farmbox Meats near Aberystwyth, Dyfed-Powys Police have arrested two men aged 64 years and 42 years, and in a simultaneous operation police arrested a man aged 63 at the Peter Boddy Slaughterhouse in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.

"Approvals for both operations were suspended yesterday by the FSA so neither firm was operational.

"Dyfed Powys Police can confirm the three people have been arrested on suspicion of offences under the Fraud Act and they are being detained at Aberystwyth Police Station where they will be interviewed jointly by Police and FSA staff in what has this afternoon become a joint operation."

The two plants became the first UK suppliers suspected of passing off horse meat for beef.

Production at both plants was suspended pending the outcome of investigations into claims they supplied and used horse carcasses in meat products purporting to be beef for burgers and kebabs.

The FSA said on Tuesday it had "detained" all meat found at the premises and seized paperwork and customer lists from the two companies.

The arrests came as it emerged a significant amount of horse meat containing the painkiller phenylbutazone - or "bute" - could have been entering the food chain for some time.

Authorities in Britain and France are trying to trace the carcasses of six horses contaminated with bute - which were slaughtered in a UK abattoir and may have entered the human food chain across the Channel.

The drug, which is potentially harmful to human health, was detected in eight horses out of 206 tested by the FSA in the first week of this month.

Two were intercepted and destroyed before leaving the slaughterhouse but the other six were sent to France, where horse meat is commonly eaten.

FSA chief executive Catherine Brown said the agency increased testing of horse carcasses over a three-month period last year after intelligence from abattoirs suggested bute was getting into the food chain.

Of 63 tested - amounting to five per cent of all carcasses - four (six per cent) tested positive for the painkiller, prompting the FSA to start testing 100 per cent of horse meat in January, which revealed the eight contaminated carcasses.

Brown said: "That would say there has been a significant amount of carcasses with bute going into the food chain for some time."
