Horsemeat has been found in minced beef served in school dinners in Leicestershire. Leicestershire County Council says tests show the beef contained less than 1% trace of horse DNA and has been permanently removed from school menus:
We want to reassure parents that there is no health risk and that we're satisfied with the quality of all the beef products we serve.
The vast majority of food we supply is Red Tractor-assured and we will continue to regularly seek assurances from our school food suppliers to ensure that they comply with legislation.
