FSA on 'steady progress' of tests on beef products

Steve Wearne, director of the Food Standards Agency in Wales, has spoken about the first of industry results from beef products that have been tested for the presence of horse DNA.

He told ITV News' Consumer Editor Chris Choi it was "steady progress and we want the industry to continue until we have a complete picture of all beef products on sale in the UK".

The seven contaminated products

  • Aldi - Today special frozen lasagne.
  • Aldi - Today special frozen spaghetti bolognese.
  • Co-op - Beef burger quarter pounder.
  • Findus - Beef lasagne 320g, 360g, 500g.
  • Rangeland - Range of catering products.
  • Tesco - Everyday value frozen burger.
  • Tesco - Everyday value spaghetti bolognese.

The Food Standards Agency's director of communications Stephen Humphreys said he could "assure" the public that all seven had now been taken off the shelves.
