Waitrose emails customers after pork found in beef meatballs

Waitrose Managing Director Mark Price wrote:

We have now done tests on 40 of our meat products. No horsemeat was found in any of these tests.

We did, however, discover that in two batches of our essential Waitrose frozen British beef meatballs (480g), some of the meatballs may contain some pork.

Although the meatballs are safe to eat, pork is not listed as an ingredient and should not be part of the recipe.
