– Food Standards Agency spokesperson
The advert does show some delicious-looking lamb in a strange setting. We are not saying there is a problem with lamb.
We are simply reminding consumers to check hygiene standards when eating out, and not just the appearance of an establishment, as this could be deceptive.
We trust the intelligence of the public on this one. We don’t think anyone will be put off eating lamb by this advert.
The Farmers' Union of Wales has criticised a food hygiene campaign run by the Food Standards Agency, which shows a lamb chop in the bottom of a urinal.
