Suffolk: Horsemeat Products Still On Sale

Trading Standards say they've found products containing horsemeat, that should have been taken off the shelves, still on sale in Suffolk

Suffolk Trading Standards is urging Suffolk retailers to check their stocks after Birds Eye confirmed horse DNA has been detected in both its Spaghetti Bolognese (340g) and Beef Lasagne (400g).

Birds Eye has confirmed that it had removed all products from shelves on 22nd February 2013. However, Suffolk Trading Standards has been informed that some smaller retail outlets may still be offering these products for sale and may not be aware of the withdrawal.

Retailers should also check that they are not continuing to stock Findus Beef Lasagne (320g, 360g and 500g) which has also been found to contain horse DNA and should have already been taken off the shelves.

Councillor Colin Spence, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for public protection said; “It is imperative that retailers in Suffolk are aware of this recall and act swiftly to remove any of the products identified by the Food Standards Agency from their shelves.”

There is believed to be no food safety risk for any of these products, but they do not comply with Food Labelling laws and therefore should not be sold.
