Finland: Horse meat found in more kebab products

Finland's food safety watchdog Evira has identified horse DNA in kebab products sold by the meat processing company Karelian Lihajaloste Oy. The questionable batch of products has been pulled from store shelves.

The family-owned meat processing company Karelian Lihajaloste Oy has withdrawn kebab products in which horse meat was found.

Horse meat was not listed as an ingredient on the product packaging. The findings concern retail products with a use-by date of March 23.

Tests by the Finnish Food Safety Agency Evira revealed that the products contained between one and five percent horse DNA.

In compliance with European Commission recommendations, Evira has passed on 50 samples of the product for further examination. No horse meat was detected in another 20 samples initially inspected.

Final results of the testing will be revealed in April.
