Asda corned beef customers 'unlikely to fall ill'

The Food Standards Agency has said it will continue testing products "until there's nothing left to find" after the veterinary painkilling drug phenylbutazone - or bute - was found in Asda Smart Price Corned Beef.

The agency's director of operations Andrew Rhodes said customers should not eat the corned beef but added anyone who does is very unlikely to fall ill.

He advised customers to return the product to the supermarket to receive a full refund.
