Horsemeat: FSA expands processed meat sampling
The horsemeat issue has led the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to expand its processed meat authenticity survey.
According to the FSA, its UK-wide survey of food authenticity in processed meat products is being carried out by local authorities and has been expanded to include an extra 290 items, bring the total to 514.
Sampling will be carried out in three phases, with the first two being carried out by 28 local authorities and including beef-based foods sold either pre-packed or loose.
Third-phase sampling will be allocated to other local authorities across the UK. The FSA said this phase is scheduled to start the week beginning 25 February.
