Traces of bute found in horse carcasses from UK abattoirs14/02/2013 - 10:52:54
Traces of bute, which is potentially harmful to human health, have been found in eight horse carcasses from UK abattoirs, three of which have entered the food chain in France.
Tests for the horse painkiller in Findus food products have come back negative however, British Agriculture Minister David Heath told the House of Commons today.
The minister met representatives of British food retailers and suppliers yesterday and received assurances that “meaningful” results will be available tomorrow from tests designed to detect the presence of horsemeat in products labelled beef.
