Richard Lander School in Truro, Cornwall, has temporarily removed beef products, including Cornish pasties, from the menu as the horse meat scandal worsens. Eden Food Services, the company that supplies the school with meals, says it too is taking precautions:
We are extremely confident that no contamination has occurred in any of our beef products as a result of robust due diligence processes we have in place with our suppliers. However, as an added precaution we are removing a small number of beef products from sale until we have received the satisfactory guarantees from our suppliers. ... We are taking the current concerns very seriously, but we are completely satisfied that every step has been taken to ensure the integrity of our food chain.
