FSA hand over horsemeat evidence
Evidence seized as part of the investigation into the horsemeat scandal has been handed to Europol, the Food Standards Agency has confirmed.
Officials said they had submitted a "full file" to the EU's law enforcement agency, after computers, documents and meat samples were taken from three UK premises this week.
It comes after Ed Miliband criticised ministers over their failure to “get a grip” of the scandal, and said the Government's response had been sluggish.
Yesterday results from Extensive Food Standards Agency testing were released and did not show any further contaminated products. However hospital and school meals are now believed to have been contaminated.
Speaking on a visit to Eastleigh today, the Labour leader said the Government did not have a “proper strategy” to deal with the crisis.
“I think that they’ve been slow off the mark and they should have been quicker off the mark and clearer about a proper strategy to deal with this very serious issue,” he said.
