Horse meat rears its head again

Horse meat has been found in so-called canned sliced beef for sale in Home Bargains, the discount high street store, and Quality Save. The Food Standards Agency said the product, Food Hall Sliced Beef in Rich Gravy, has been removed from sale in the some stores. The presence of horse DNA was detected during routine testing carried out by Lincolnshire County Council’s trading standards. The canned beef was manufactured in Romania in January 2013.
