Consumers will be rightly concerned by this news. People should be able to go into the supermarket and be confident that what that they are buying for their families is legal and safe. There are serious questions for the Government to answer about what happened and why it wasn't detected by British food safety authorities. Shoppers wanting reassurance should look for the Red Tractor mark which guarantees quality British standards.
This is a wake up call for the Government and retailers that rolling back regulation that protects our food serves no-one and is against consumer interest. This retailers affected must now work to reassure all shoppers about where their meat comes from.
