Horse DNA has been found in some beef burgers being sold in UK and Irish supermarkets, the Republic of Ireland's food safety authority (FSAI) has said.

 

The FSAI said the meat came from two processing plants in Ireland, Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods, and the Dalepak Hambleton plant in Yorkshire.

 

It said they posed no health risk.

 

The burgers were on sale in Tesco and Iceland in the UK and Ireland. In the Republic of Ireland they were on sale in Dunnes Stores, Lidl, and Aldi.

 

"In Ireland, it is not in our culture to eat horsemeat and therefore, we do not expect to find it in a burger.”

 

The FSAI said the retailers have stated that they were removing all implicated batches of the burgers.

 

A total of 27 products were analysed, with 10 of them containing horse DNA and 23 containing pig DNA.

 

Horsemeat accounted for approximately 29% of the meat content in one sample from Tesco.
