Horsemeat arrests as results revealed

BRITISH police investigating alleged mislabeling of beef products arrested three people yesterday at facilities in Wales and Yorkshire which had handled horsemeat and were raided by police earlier. The arrests come as the first set of results from tests carried out by the Food Standards Agency into processed beef suspected of containing horsemeat are revealed today. MPs said yesterday that current results showing horsemeat in beef are likely to just be the “tip of the iceberg”.
