The Food Standards Agency, along with police, raided two meat premises on suspicion of supplying horse carcasses, instead of beef, to suppliers. An FSA spokesperson said:
The plant in West Yorkshire is Peter Boddy Licensed Slaughterhouse, Todmorden, West Yorkshire, and we believe it supplied horse carcasses to Farmbox Meats Ltd, Llandre, Aberystwyth.
The Agency and the police are looking into the circumstances through which meat products, purporting to be beef for kebabs and burgers, were sold when they were in fact horse.
The FSA has suspended operations at both plants.
