French firm mislabelled horsemeat. What? It was saying moo accidentally? A horse learning foreign languages? Impossible especially if it was a French horse!
However and according the news, “French meat processing company Spanghero knowingly sold horsemeat labelled as beef, the French government has said. Spanghero’s licence is being suspended while an inquiry continues, Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll said. The firm has denied the allegations, saying it only ever dealt in meat it believed to be beef. A widening scandal over mislabelled horsemeat has affected at least 12 European countries. In the UK, three people have been arrested on suspicion of fraud in connection with the sale of horsemeat. Two suspects were detained at a meat processing plant near Aberystwyth in Wales, and a third was arrested at an abattoir in West Yorkshire.”
