MINISTER FOR AGRICULTURE Simon Coveney has sharply criticised companies involved in the horsemeat controversy for their bad practices.
An official government investigation has found a range of problems at meat-producing companies, from mislabelling products to withholding information about meat contaminated with horse DNA. The Minister said the companies involved risk causing reputational damage to Ireland’s food sector.
A large number of companies and products have been implicated since horsemeat was first discovered in beef products in January.
So today we’re asking: Are you still happy to eat Irish beef?
