Food Standard Agency horsemeat investigation

Questions are naturally being raised about the safety of eating frozen meat products in light of the Food Standard Agency (FSA) horsemeat investigation.

Advice published on the FSA website today (8 February) states:

“People have been asking whether it is safe to eat any frozen meat products at the moment. There is no reason to suspect that there’s any health issue with frozen food in general, and we wouldn’t advise people to stop eating it.

“In the particular cases of the Findus lasagne and the Tesco burgers, they have been withdrawn from sale. Anyone who has them in their freezer should return them to retailers as a precaution. In addition to the widespread testing we are doing, we’ve instructed the industry to urgently carry out its own tests on processed beef products to see whether horsemeat is present.”

If you have any concerns at all about any meals or meat products refer back to your supplier.
