Poultry from China sparks search for illegal meat

CHINA - The Food Standards Agency is trying to trace hundreds of tonnes of poultry, beef and pork following the interception of an illegal consignment of chicken shipped from China.

The discovery of the chicken led to raids on a meat wholesaler where the authorities found evidence of other illegally relabelled meats. The FSA is now trying to trace meat supplied from the same premises to companies across the UK.

An alert has been issued to every local authority to check all meat originating from Eurofreeze (Ireland) Ltd and to impound it if they are suspicious about its labelling. Eurofreeze has had its licence to operate suspended.
