This video is called Inside Story – Horsemeat scandal: Who is to be blamed?
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Sausages 46 per cent horse meat
Saturday 4th october 2014
A food import company has been whacked with a £5,000 fine after selling bangers that were almost 50 per cent horse meat, trading standards announced yesterday.
Kent County Council (KCC) trading standards officers carried out a test purchase at a shop in Dartford in October last year.
Tests on the vacuum-packed Lukanka Chumerna, labelled as pork sausages, revealed that they contained 46 per cent horse meat.
The Bulgarian-manufactured salami product had been imported by Expo Foods Limited, based in Enfield, north London.
A KCC trading standards spokesman said the firm did not test the sample, despite widespread media coverage about undeclared horse meat in various food products.
The company pleaded guilty to a charge under the Food Safety Act at Dartford magistrates’ court, the spokesman added.
As well as being fined £5,000 the firm was ordered to pay £2,500 towards the council’s costs, plus a £120 surcharge.
