Beef products pulled from 17 schools

Northamptonshire County Council has removed beef products from 17 schools in the county.

The council was advised by its supplier on Friday afternoon that traces of horsemeat had been identified in one of ten tests undertaken nationally on a frozen minced beef product.

Although the tests were not on a sample of beef supplied to Northamptonshire, as a precautionary measure the council has removed all beef products from the menu of those schools.

Beef in the remaining 199 primary schools has been confirmed as clear from any contamination of horsemeat.
