David Heath horsemeat statement

Statement from David Heath following the meeting with food businesses this morning (13 th february).

Farming Minister David Heath said:

“Today I had a productive meeting with major retailers, food distributors and devolved administrations on our plan of action to deal with the problem of horsemeat in processed beef products

“I reiterated that the current situation is totally unacceptable and that retailers, caterers and other food business operators need to be completely open with their customers.

“They assured me that they are on track to share meaningful test results by Friday and we discussed practical, pragmatics steps on how to take this forward.

“The Food Standards Agency will be informed immediately of any tests that show a positive contamination.

“All results will be analysed and if there is evidence of fraud then enforcement action will be taken against those responsible.”
