No traces of horse DNA have been found in food providing by Vale of Glamorgan Council's catering service.
It follows tests on products available at schools, day centres, lunch clubs and care homes within the borough.
We understand that residents may have concerns in light of the recent revelations that horse meat has been discovered in beef products in some outlets across the UK. Tests have been carried out to verify that meat products supplied by the council do not contain horse DNA. We can assure residents that our catering service is unaffected. We will continue to monitor this situation closely.
