United Kingdom: meat testing protocol published by FSA

The Food Standards Agency has published the protocol for the UK-wide survey of food authenticity in processed meat products.

Friday 8 February 2013 (5 years 3 months 13 days ago)

The Food Standards Agency has published the protocol for the UK-wide survey of food authenticity in processed meat products. This has been drawn up in collaboration with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the devolved rural affairs departments and local authorities.

The survey will use specialised analytical techniques to provide information about the possible presence of horse or pig DNA in a range of beef products available to UK consumers. It also aims to identify and understand factors that may lead to the presence of meat species that are not labelled as an ingredient, so that this can be explained, eliminated or correctly labelled. This work is in addition to the preliminary sampling work that has already taken place.
