Poland finds horse DNA in 'beef'28/02/2013 - 10:35:31
Traces of horse DNA have been found in beef samples taken from three meat processors in Poland – the first acknowledgement that the country could be a source of the horsemeat that fraudulently ended up in products sold as beef across Europe.
Deputy National Veterinarian Janusz Zwiazek said today that the DNA was found in three samples out of 121 tested.
They came from plants in central Poland.
Some 80 more samples are to be tested.
Mr Zwiazek said that all three cases have been reported to the prosecutors.
