Firm run by minister's brother linked to horsemeat controversy

Greencore foods has said that it was the supplier of Bolognese sauce containing horsemeat which was today withdrawn from sale in Asda in the UK.

The company says the sauce was supplied by the ABP Food Group’s Nenagh plant in Co Tipperary.

Three other Greencore products have been withdrawn by Asda as a precautionary measure.

The firm, run by Patrick Coveney, the brother of the Agriculture Minister, said it is complying with suppliers and testers to get to the bottom of the contamination.
