The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has identified porcine and equine DNA at trace levels in two consignments of burgers produced at the Dalepak production facility at Hambleton in Yorkshire. The FSAI stress that there is no food safety issue with these burgers. A spokesman for Dalepak said:
Following tests carried out by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, we have been alerted to two batches of frozen beef burgers which have been potentially contaminated with traces of pork and equine DNA measured at less than 0.1% of the meat content. Dalepak are co-operating fully with the Competent Authorities and have launched a full-scale investigation.
