Agency to boost screening of processed foods

"It is the company's responsibility"
5:35 min

The National Food Agency says it will strengthen screening of processed foods sold in stores. The move comes after the Findus brand of frozen "beef" lasagna was found to contain horse meat.

On Monday, the agency gathered representatives from the meat and trade industry to discuss the scandal. The supervisory authority had considered filing a police complaint against Findus but decided to wait until it had a better foundation to move ahead.

The National Food Agency will now work with municipalities and local food supervisory authorities to do random checks on processed food in supermarkets.

The goal is to determine whether the meat inside the box matches the label.
