Tesco burgers contain horsemeat16th January 2013
An investigation has been launched after horsemeat was found in burgers on sale in Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland and Dunnes Stores.
Findings showed that in Tesco Everyday Value Beef Burgers horsemeat accounted for approximately 29% of the meat content, prompting the supermarket to take all frozen burgers from sale immediately. An investigation has been carried out by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland and now the Food Standards Agency, working with the Irish authorities, has established that mainland Britain was also affected. Some 37% of the products tested in Ireland contained horse DNA and some contained pig DNA.
