Hungarian horse meat labelled as beef found in Lancashire

The Food Standards Agency has been informed by Lancashire County Council that it has identified 100kg of horse meat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  .

The meat was imported by Hungarian Food Ltd in Preston. Investigations showed that 40kg were sold through Hungarian Food Ltd’s own market stall in Preston, and through a shop in Liverpool called Taste of Hungary. The remaining meat has been withdrawn from sale. The meat was sold in 1kg bags labelled as ‘diced beef’.

The Food Standards Agency has notified the European Commission and the Hungarian authorities.

The local authority is investigating and the meat will be tested for the veterinary drug ‘bute’.
