McDonald's tests confirm no horsemeat

McDonald's has confirmed tests for horsemeat in its products came back negative.

Jill McDonald, the president and chief executive of McDonald's UK, said:

We voluntarily provided samples of all beef burgers currently available on our menu to the Food Standards Agency (FSA) for their own tests.

All tests, including our own, have now been completed and we can confirm that no horsemeat has been found in any of McDonald's products.

Our beef supply chain is short and transparent and has just five simple steps from the farms through to the food we serve in our restaurants.
